Adams comments on sanctions speculation

28 February, 2003

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP, Martin McGuinness MP and Gerry Kelly MLA were in London today for talks to resolve the current crisis. Responding to media speculation about the possibility of sanctions as part of any resolution to the crisis Mr. Adams said:

"Sinn Féin is involved in intense discussions with both governments across all the issues at the heart of this crisis -- policing, demilitarisation, equality, human rights, criminal justice and so on.

"Under no circumstances will Sinn Féin accept the rights of our electorate being diluted or denied.

"We will not be held accountable except for the Sinn Féin party and our mandate."
