Adams calls for release of West Belfast man

16 January, 2013 - by Gerry Adams

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams TD has called on those who have kidnapped a West Belfast man in Algeria to release him.

The Sinn Féin leader said:

“The abduction of a West Belfast man at the Amenas gas field in eastern Algeria has caused great distress to his family and community.

"I have been in touch with the family to express my solidarity at this difficult time and I have spoken with the Irish government’s Department of Foreign Affairs who are doing all they can to help the family and secure the release of the kidnapped Irish citizen.

"I would appeal to the kidnappers to release their victim and all of his colleagues.”
