A Welcome Development - Adams

Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams MP has described the recovery of the remains of one of those killed and buried by the IRA in the 1970's as a `welcome development'.

Mr. Adams said:

``This issue is a human rights issue, a justice issue. Sinn Fein have supported the families demands for these bodies to be returned and I welcome this mornings development.

``I know that these are very trying and difficult times for the families involved and I hope that the other bodies are recovered quickly and returned to their families.''ENDS
