Gerry Adams repeats call for information on McCartney murder

8 March, 2005


Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP has repeated his call for those with information on the murder of Robert McCartney to come forward.

Mr Adams said:

"Despite numerous appeals those who killed Robert McCartney have not come forward.

"It is clear that their refusal to do the right thing by the family of Robert McCartney is entirely motivated by self-interest.

"There should be no doubt about this. There can be no other explanation for their refusal to accept full responsibility for their actions.

"Witnesses have come forward. I would appeal to others who have not come forward to do so now. I would also ask those who have made statements to reflect on the terrible events of that night and to carefully consider whether there is anything additional they can ad to their first accounts. Every piece of information is crucial.

"This is the only way that the family can have the closure they are campaigning for and deserve." ENDS
