Martin McGuinness claims old: Peter Robinson

First Minister Peter Robinson has insisted no one will be surprised over former IRA man Peter Rogers' claims Martin McGuinness was a "director of terrorism".
Asked by unionist arch-rival Jim Allister whether the allegations affected the credibility of the Stormont regime, Mr Robinson said he also believed there were people who were being "left alone" by Government because of the peace process.
Chiding Mr Allister for suggesting there was anything "novel" in the Rogers claims, Mr Robinson said: "The Deputy First Minister has made no secret of his involvement with the IRA.
"I have consistently indicated I believe certain people have been left alone because of their involvement with the political process, which the Government do not want to disturb."
