SF reject programme's 'discredited conspiracy theories' about Gerry Adams

Sinn Féin has rejected claims that Gerry Adams ordered the murder of an IRA spy.

BBC's Spotlight programme last night suggested that Mr Adams gave the go-ahead to kill IRA informer Denis Donaldson in 2006, because Republican Thomas 'Slab' Murphy wanted him dead.

The claims were made by a man known only as 'Martin', who says he worked for the RUC as a mole inside the IRA since 1997.

However today, Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly has called the programme "a collection of discredited conspiracy theories".

He says the programme makers have no regard for the families of the victim.
