Adams calls on British to publish `Overall Strategy' on demilitarisation
Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams MP has given a `preliminary welcome to the publication today of the report by the UN Committee against Torture.'
The Sinn Fein President today called on the British government to ``immediately publish its ``Overall Strategy for demilitarisation which it is committed to producing under the Agreement.''
Mr. Adams said:
``This UN report, like scores of other by Human Rights agencies over the past 30 years, has condemned the behaviour of the RUC, as well as the approach of the British government to the use of torture and of plastic bullets.
``It is further evidence of the logic of Sinn Fein's demand that the RUC be disbanded.
``While we await the report of the Policing Commission the British government should immediately publish its overall strategy for demilitarisation which it is committed to producing under the terms of the Good Friday Agreement.''
