A journalist has told a jury at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court that he was “terrified” by death threats allegedly made to him by a man he believed “had the capacity and wherewithal” to carry them out.

Mr Paul Williams, cheap nfl jerseys Crime Editor of the Sunday World, said that based on his research into the man on other matters he believed that he had the capacity to “kill or seriously injure me”.

Mr James Walsh, aged 46, of Mountain View Drive, Churchtown, has pleaded not guilty to threatening to kill Mr Williams during a phone call on June 25, 2003 and also threatening to cause him serious harm in a later call the same day.

Mr Williams agreed, during his cross examination by Mr Pat Russell BL, defending Mr Walsh, that threats were “an occupational hazard” in his line of work noting that his two colleagues, Veronica Guerin and Martin O’Hagan, had been murdered.

“My colleague had been threatened in the same way by Gilligan and she ended up dead. My colleague in Belfast was also threatened and was shot dead. I took it seriously.”
