I made no threat against Michael McConville - Adams

6 May, 2014 - by Gerry Adams TD

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams TD has said he made no threat to Michael McConville during their conversations.

Mr  Adams said:

“My sole purpose in meeting with Michael McConville was and is to help the family.

I can understand the antipathy they feel toward republicans given the abduction and killing of their mother and the life they subsequently had.

However, I made no threat against Michael McConville and neither did I warn of backlash.

The family have the right to seek redress in whatever way they chose and through whatever avenue is open to them.

This case raises in a very stark way the need for the legacy issues of the past to be addressed in a way that brings closure for victims and their families.
