SINN Féin Gerry Adams has said he would be prepared to speak to police investigating the murder of Denis Donaldson if asked to do so.
Mr Adams today said he categorically denied the allegations that he sanctioned the murder of the former Sinn Féin member.
The claims, made during Tuesday night's 'BBC Spotlight' programme, have rocked the party.
But speaking to reporters at the Ploughing Championship in Tullamore, Co Offaly, the Louth TD insisted the allegations are false.
He said he does not know who killed Mr Donaldson in 2006.
"It's wrong. I repudiate it, deny it absolutely and categorically and specifically," he said.
Mr Adams suggested that "elements within the British system" are being the allegations.
Asked if he will speak to the police if they wish him to?
