Adams welcomes return of Colombia 3 to Ireland

5 August, 2005

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP responding to reports that the Colombia 3 have returned to Ireland said:

"I want to welcome this news. It will be a great relief to the three mens families and friends and I would hope that they can now get on with their lives."

Responding to comments from DUP Deputy Leader Peter Robinson and Fine Gael leader Enda Kenny, Mr. Adams said

'I want to make clear that this issue was not discussed with the Irish government nor was it either a deal or a side deal related to recent developments in the peace process." ENDS
