Sinn Féin calls for Liam Adams’ arrest

18 December, 2009


Sinn Féin Vice President Mary Lou McDonald speaking following a UTV Insight programme concerning the sexual abuse of Gerry Adams niece Áine Tyrell said:

“Obviously this is a private family matter but Sinn Féin’s procedure in relation to any incident of child abuse is that the issue be brought immediately to the attention of those with the responsibility to deal with it – social services and the Gardaí or PSNI.  The interests of the child are always paramount. That is what happened in this case as far back as 1987.

“No one individual or family can deal with something so traumatic on their own. I only hope that Gerry’s niece, Áine, can get the justice that she wants and deserves.  Liam Adams must be arrested and brought before the courts. Anyone with information on his whereabouts needs to bring it forward immediately.” ENDS
