Gerry Adams warns of assault on integrity of Sinn Féin mandate
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP has this afternoon warned that "there could well be a full frontal assault on the Sinn Féin political project and on the integrity of our mandate."
Mr. Adams said that the party "will give careful consideration as to how it responds to this as the situation develops in the time ahead.
"This is a not a time to kneejerk against some of the more outlandish claims being made, particularly by representatives of the two governments.
"At the same time no one could expect Sinn Féin to desist from our efforts to advance the agenda for change and particularly the equality agenda. We will continue to relentlessly pursue these and to seek to advance the peace process." ENDS
