Two charged over threatening to kill Deputy Premier

TWO men have been charged with threatening to kill or threatening New South Wales Deputy Premier Troy Grant, his family and his staff over the State's move to ban greyhound racing.

The men, aged 22 and 31, were arrested on Saturday at Molong, near Orange. They are members of the greyhound racing industry.

They are alleged to have made threatening phone calls to the offices of Mr Grant (pictured), the state's police minister.

Greyhound racing is set to be banned in NSW from July.

Both men were granted bail on strict conditions to appear in Orange Local Court next month.
