Robbers hostile towards Sinn Fein

Martin McGuinness with a frank statement that the robbers, whoever they were, were acting against Sinn Fein’s committment to peace. He has also suggested that Ahern’s statement backing the Cheif Constable Hugh Orde, was politically motivated. However he believes those who have bought that line will be severely disappointed.He added:

“I am angry about the robbery, angry about the fallout from the robbery and angry about the damage that can be done to a peace process that I and Gerry Adams have worked very hard for many years with the Taoiseach and Tony Blair to build.”
