IRA's robbery charade is insult to our intellect

A lack of evidence can in no way exculpate Sinn Fein -- so please, let's all drop the pretence, writes Celia Larkin

THE WikiLeaks posting of memos on the 2004 Northern Bank robbery and the IRA position in relation to it seems to have rattled the Sinn Fein cage.

"At the time Gerry Adams and I rejected what we said were unfounded allegations. We do so again today. We publicly and privately challenged the former taoiseach to produce evidence to support his allegations and he failed," said Martin McGuinness.

It is interesting to listen to Martin McGuinness and indeed Gerry Adams claim that the IRA had no part in the Northern Bank robbery on December 20, 2004. In fact, what they said was that there was no evidence to support the allegations.
