Adams: Put up or shut up

10/02/2005 - 15:50:36

Sinn Féin leader Gerry Adams branded the Independent Monitoring Commission report rubbish today and challenged Taoiseach Bertie Ahern to have him arrested in relation to the Northern Bank robbery.

Mr Adams called on Mr Ahern to withdraw his allegations that he had prior knowledge of the December heist or else have him charged with conspiracy to rob and withholding information.

He said: “I think the Taoiseach has crossed the line. It’s time for him to shut up or put up.”

The Sinn Féin leader said there were sinister aspects in the report by the IMC which he described as “three spooks and a lord” and a tool of the Irish and British governments.

He also accused the Irish Government of playing “dirty politics” with the Northern Ireland peace process.

He was speaking outside the Dáil, where an all-party motion was carried last night calling on Sinn Féin and the IRA to abandon violence and embrace democracy.
