Gerry Adams - sole interest is to help the McConville family

7 July, 2006

Commenting on the statement by the Police Ombudsman today into the killing of Jean McConville Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams said:

“I have been meeting with the McConville family for some time.

“My sole interest has been to help the family.

“Whatever about the circumstances surrounding Jean McConville’s killing, the burial of her remains was a great injustice to the family. And the family endured significant hardship in the years which followed.

“Sinn Fein has worked hard in recent years to resolve the issue of those remains buried by the IRA and still not recovered and we continue to talk to the Irish government on this matter.” ENDS
