Bobby Storey (centre), northern chairman of Sinn Féin

The two other men arrested were veteran Belfast republicans Brian Gillen and Eddie Copeland. The trio were being questioned about the killing of McGuigan outside his house in the Short Strand district of east Belfast in August.

Expressing his concern over Storey’s arrest, McGuinness said: “Bobby Storey is a valued member of Sinn Féin’s core leadership. He has played a leading role in the development of Sinn Féin’s peace strategy and is a longstanding and loyal supporter, defender and advocate of the peace and political processes.”

      Yup – they created the peace process by the simple measure of stopping blowing stuff up/disappearing people/kneecapping people.

    Nobody can take this party seriously whilst Gerry Adams claims to have never been a member of the pIRA. Whilst it is well documented that he was a commander in Belfast and likely head of that organisations ‘army’ council

        THAT MAN isn’t the issue.
        Progression is the imperative.

        It’s a big word.
        Look it up.

        Any gripe we may have with the FF and FG parties over killing people went away after several decades of not killing people and the clear, unambiguous position that FF and FG members weren’t members of dissident armies intent on murder.

        Adams and his ilk would do better to come clean, retire and let people without a foot in the military camp take over to see if the party can prosper from there.

    If only they knew who the chief intelligence officer of the PIRA was maybe if they arrested him they’d get the information they needed

      @Pat The Banker:

      Misspelling is what I do.
      It was MY idea.
      You can have it.
      It’s not that funny.

      @Everybody Else:
      Pat is probably not as good at walking as you are.

    Just softening up the electorate, north and south…fling enough sh1t and some will stick, if the people are arrested and not charged with anything – compare the column inches before and after the facts are presented, Sindo/Indo (she who (loudly) protests too much, me thinks) will do what it does directed by whatever agencies are pulling the strings to hysterically present a case against voting for them. If the mentioned people are found guilty of wrongdoing, well that’s a different storey, but how likely is it based on previous highly publicised arrests?
