Republican Action Against Drugs (RAAD) have issued a chilling death threat against a man they claim is a major drug dealer in the city.
It's believed that the man - who RAAD named in a statement to the 'Journal - is currently out of the country and has been for some time.
However, the organisation say that, if he returns to the city, he will be "executed on sight".
It's believed that property owned by the individual on the cityside has been targeted by RAAD in recent weeks.
The organisation - which has carried out a series of punishment-style attacks on people they claim are drug dealers - told the 'Journal': "If this death dealer resurfaces from living the high life abroad, he will be executed on sight.
"We said before that, if we cannot get to the dealers themselves, we will target their assets."
Last night, when contacted by the 'Journal', the man's family said they were aware of the allegations and were "making efforts to resolve the situation."
The man's father - who didn't want to be named - said: "While it is hard to accept, we do not refute the allegations."
Visibly upset, he added: "I never knew what he was involved in - this is a horrible revelation. He left the country a year and a half ago and, as far as I'm aware, he has been living a good life. I've asked him repeatedly if he has been telling me the truth - and I believe he is.
"I am now trying to resolve the situation so my son can return home safely. In fact, I am trying to encourage my son to meet with the people who issued this death threat."
