Adams warns of Sinn Féin expulsions

07 March 2005 09:55

The President of Sinn Féin has said that an expulsion process would begin against suspended Sinn Féin members if they did not make 'full and truthful' statements on the murder of Robert McCartney.

Gerry Adams agreed there was unease in his party over his decision to pass information to the Police Ombudsman in connection with Mr McCartney's killing. However, he said there had been no other way to deal with the issue.

In an interview with the RTÉ Radio One's The Week in Politics programme, Mr Adams said he had been duty-bound to suspend without prejudice Sinn Féin members named by the family.

Meanwhile, the fall-out from the Northern Bank robbery on the peace process is set to dominate a meeting of the British-Irish Inter-Parliamentary Conference which gets under way today.

The two-day gathering of politicians from Britain, Northern Ireland and the Republic is taking place in Bundoran in Co Donegal.
