Gardaí are investigating threats made against MEP Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan and his six-year-old daughter.
The Independent MEP revealed he received abusive messages on his TikTok account on Wednesday night. Among the posts received was a threat to his youngest child.
As a result, gardaí in Castlerea, Co Roscommon, where Mr Flanagan lives with his family, have advised him to install security measures at his home.
Posting on his Twitter account MEP Flanagan said the situation made it “impossible to do one’s job. I’ve just left Castlerea Garda Station after reporting threats on my TikTok account towards my 6-year-old daughter.We’ve been advised by the Gardaí to get security for our house This is so wrong. It’s impossible to do one’s job in this situation,” he said.
The messages were sent to Mr Flanagan’s TikTok account from an anonymous account.
