Sinn Féin strongly refutes Sunday World 'fabrication'

15 July, 2007

A Sinn Féin spokesperson has described a story in the Sunday World suggesting that party members in Dublin are involved with criminals as "a fabrication".

The spokesperson strongly refuted the story and said: "Once again, the Sunday World has produced a story with no evidence to back it up. Sinn Féin has absolutely no link with Marlo Hyland or any other criminal. We expect the highest standards from our members and our public representatives, many of whom have put themselves in the front line in confronting drug dealers and gangland figures in this city.

"Furthermore, claims that individuals named in the article are members of our party are also inaccurate."ENDS
