McGuinness suggests 'securocrats' were behind Belfast raid

11:48 Monday January 24th 2005

Sinn Fein MP Martin McGuinness has suggested that British military intelligence agents may have been behind last month's £26.5m bank heist in Belfast.

The PSNI, backed by the Irish and British Governments and all the North's political parties except Sinn Fein, has publicly blamed the Provisional IRA for the robbery.

However, in an article in the Derry Journal today, Mr McGuinness appeared to suggest that British intelligence carried out the raid to undermine the peace process.

The Sinn Fein MP referred to a string of recent incidents that were blamed on the IRA, despite the lack of evidence or criminal charges against republicans.

He also referred to the 1973 bank robbery trial of the Littlejohn brothers, who said they were paid to work for British intelligence against the IRA.
