The Vice-President of the Union of Members’ Clubs and Lottery Workers has allegedly received a death threat.

Sean Clarke, who is expected to speak in the Senate later today, says he received mail this morning stating, "Traitor you speak you die". 

Last week members of the Trinidad and Tobago Members Club Association met with officials of the Finance Ministry to discuss the proposed 100% increase in gaming taxes. 

The outcome of the meeting has been described as disheartening by many stakeholders. 

The move is expected to leave hundreds on the breadline.
