Sinn Féin - On Your Side

IMC report based on securocrat information

4 November, 2004


Commenting as the latest report by the IMC is published, Sinn Féin Assembly member for North Belfast Gerry Kelly said, 'parties cannot on one hand claim to support the Good Friday Agreement and on the other pander to the IMC and allow it to exert a negative influence over the process'.

Mr Kelly said:

" Reports produced by the IMC are based solely on material provided by the securocrats within the Special Branch, MI5 and British Military Intelligence. All of these organisations are opposed to the peace process and opposed to the Good Friday Agreement. Previous reports have already been exposed as riddled with inaccuracies. Given these facts the IMC has no credibility within the broad nationalist and republican community and the contents of this latest report are of little interest to it.

" The focus of Sinn Féin at this time is to see the Good Friday Agreement implemented. We will not allow the IMC or anyone else to subvert that Agreement. The IMC operates entirely outside the terms of the Agreement. Parties cannot on one hand claim to support the Good Friday Agreement and on the other pander to the IMC and allow it to exert a negative influence over the process." ENDS
