Tape to haunt Gerry Adams
A voice from the grave will this week be heard alleging Gerry Adams’ role as an IRA chief and leader of a ruthless secret unit — heaping fresh pressure on the Sinn Fein boss.
An audio recording of former IRA commander Brendan ‘The Dark’ Hughes will feature in a TV documentary fingering him as leader of the squad that murdered disappeared mother-of-10 Jean McConville.
Hughes, an ex-Army Council member, died in 2008, but he gave audio testimony of his role in the Troubles to the archive of Boston College in 2001 saying it could only be released after his death.
