Adams protests to US Administration over Airport Security delay

18 March, 2006

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams and party colleagues Rita O'Hare and Richard McAuley were unable to attend scheduled events in Buffalo last night and today after they were detained by security screening problems at Dulles Airport last night.

Speaking today before departing for Boston Mr Adams said:

"I am deeply disappointed that I could not attend the events in Buffalo. Last night 700 people turned up to be briefed on the Peace Process.

"I have consistently raised with the Administration the problem of additional security screening. While I understand the need for vigilance Sinn Féin members are the victims of an unacceptable and unfair administrative practice. We have protested again today to the Administration." ENDS
