Adams appeals for info in McCartney murder hunt

25/02/2005 - 14:06:39

Sinn Féin leader Gerry Adams has reiterated his call on anyone with information about the murder of Belfast man Robert McCartney to come forward to the authorities.

The 33-year-old was beaten and stabbed to death outside a pub in the west of the city on January 30, allegedly by senior IRA members.

His family has accepted that the killing was not an IRA operation, but has claimed witnesses are being intimidated to prevent them from providing information to the police.

The matter has led to a backlash against Sinn Féin among some of its staunchest supporters in republican west Belfast.
