Gerry Adams: Sinn Féin chose not to walk over NAMA allegations

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams says his party could have walked out of the power sharing executive over the NAMA allegations - but chose not to.

The allegations suggested that £7m was earmarked for a northern politician arising from the sale of NAMA's northern loan book.

Mr Adams comments came as most of the northern parties met individually with the northern secretary Theresa Villiers today.

She's attempting to bring all the parties together for talks to end the crisis, which has seen most unionist politicians pull out of the power sharing executive.

Meanwhile, the British Government is understood to be considering the return of independent monitors to scrutinise paramilitary groups in Northern Ireland.

Theresa Villiers is expected to make a statement on the current political crisis in the Commons tomorrow.

It started after police said they believed IRA members were involved in the murder of Kevin McGuigan in Belfast.
