Journalist and writer Ibrahim Hussein Friday received a telephone call, threatening to ending his life at the hand of A.M. one of the YSP leaders.
This came following journalist Hussein's article on Thursday January 8 published by the 22 May weekly in which he had he discussed financial corruption of some opposition parties.
Responding to the threat Mr Hussein restricted his action to informing some newspapers on the story of threat, deeming it as a dangerous precedence by an opposition party claiming its respect for the constitution and law. He said he preserved his right to report to competent authorities and judiciary, holding the YSP responsible for any attempt against his life.
