SINN Fein President Gerry Adams has said he cannot afford to sue over the latest allegations of involvement in IRA executions as he refused to make a statement to the Dail, writes Michael Brennan.

He is coming under intensifying pressure to explain his personal involvement in Provo executions after further revelations of his role from a close ally.

Former IRA bomber Dolours Price described how Mr Adams ordered her to ferry captives, including Ms McConville, across the Border to be murdered.

The claims were raised in the Dail by Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Fine Gael backbencher Tom Barry called on him to make a statement, but Mr Adams said he he had no case to answer.
