Sunday Tribune Northern Ireland editor Breen in court threat

She said she would not be handing over her notes to the police for two reasons.

“I believe my life would be in danger from the Real IRA if I was to do so,” Breen said.

“This is an organisation which sees people as collaborators for delivering pizzas. I don’t know what they would make of a journalist who handed over all her materials to the police.

“I could remain in Northern Ireland and wait for a sledgehammer to come through my door, or I could enter a witness protection scheme and be unable to work as a journalist again in Britain.”
