Gerry Adams meets Raymond McCord

27 February, 2006

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP late this afternoon met Raymond McCord, the father of Raymond McCord jnr. who was killed by the UVF in November 1997.

Speaking after the meeting Mr. Adams said:

"There is an abundance of evidence to prove the existence of collusion between British state forces and unionist paramilitaries.

"We also know from other cases, including that of Pat Finucane, of the lengths to which the Special Branch and other British agencies will go to cover up their involvement in state sponsored murder.

"The McCord family want the truth. Like all families they have the right to the truth and Sinn Fein will do whatever we can to help them in this respect." ENDS
