Gerry Adams – President of Sinn Fein (the political wing of the terrorist IRA) since 1983 – sanctioned the murder of a former Sinn Fein official, according to a BBC investigation broadcast on Tuesday night.

Adams was MP for Belfast West until 2011, and for the past five years has been a member of the Irish Parliament as TD for Louth.

An IRA informant told the BBC:
“I know from my experience in the IRA that murders have to be approved by the leadership. They have to be given approval by the leadership of the IRA and the military leadership of the IRA.  …Gerry Adams, he gives the final say.”

The programme referred specifically to the murder of Denis Donaldson, who for many years was a senior Sinn Fein official, latterly in charge of administration at the party offices in Stormont.  Since the 1980s Donaldson had been an agent for the British security service MI5 and the Special Branch of the Royal Ulster Constabulary. He was paid to provide intelligence about terrorism and other criminal activities of Adams and his gang.

In 2005 Donaldson confessed to his 20-year role as a British agent.  A few months later he was brutally murdered at his remote cottage home.

No-one has ever been convicted for the Donaldson murder. When an investigation was reopened in 2009, a splinter group called ‘Real IRA’ conveniently claimed responsibility. However the latest BBC investigation suggests this was nonsense, and that the IRA Army Council gave the orders. Gerry Adams and his close colleague Martin McGuinness (now Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland) were the key figures within the IRA leadership throughout this period.

The latest allegations will probably not disturb Adams’s many celebrity supporters, ranging from U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump to British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.
