Adams supports McCartney family

14 February, 2005

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP commenting tonight on the killing of Robert McCartney said:

"Sinn Féin supports the McCartney family in their quest for truth and justice.

"There are allegations that Robert McCartney was killed by republicans. I want to make it absolutely clear that no one involved acted as a republican or on behalf of republicans.

"I repudiate this brutal killing in the strongest terms possible. No one has any right, as has been claimed, to prevent anyone from helping the McCartney family.

"People with reservations about assisting the PSNI should give any information they might have either to the family, a solicitor or any other authoritative or reputable person or body." ENDS
