Sinn Fein delivers list of suspected IRA rapists

Posted:

 Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams says his Irish nationalist party has delivered a list of suspected IRA rapists and child abusers to police as the government considers mounting a fact-finding inquiry into the scandal.

   Over the past month, Adams has faced accusations of shielding members of the outlawed Irish Republican Army from investigation for rape and child molestation. His chief accuser, alleged rape victim Mairia Cahill, says Adams discouraged her from going to police in favor of a secret IRA investigation.

   Adams said Monday he had provided police a list of men who fled from Northern Ireland to the Republic of Ireland after being accused of sexual crimes.

   Adams told Irish broadcasters RTE that the list "came to me anonymously. It was left in my letterbox at home in Belfast."
