CBS interview with Gerry Adams accuser sought by Northern Ireland police
British authorities launch new effort in U.S. to prove Adams was in IRA
Price freely admits that she drove alleged informer McConville to her death in 1972.
She confessed: “I drove away Jean McConville. I don’t know who gave the instructions to execute her. Obviously it was decided between the General Headquarters staff and the people in Belfast. Gerry Adams would have been part of that negotiation as to what was to happen to her.
“I had a call one night and Adams was in a house down the Falls Road and she’d been arrested by Cumann [IRA’s female unit] women and held for a couple of days. She got into my car and as far as she was concerned she was being taken away by the Legion of Mary to a place of safety.
“It wasn’t my decision to disappear her, thank God. All I had to do was drive her from Belfast to Dundalk. I even got her fish and chips and cigarettes before I left her.”
In the Sunday Telegraph interview, Price was unrepentant about the disappearance and death of McConville.
She added: “You don’t deserve to die if you are an unpleasant person as she was but you do deserve to die if you are an informer, I do believe that. Particularly in a war, that is the Republican way.”
McConville’s family have welcomed the latest PSNI move.
Son-in-law Seamus McKendry told the Guardian: “Helen [Jean McConville’s oldest daughter] and I would be very much in favour of this move by the police.
“Every piece of the jigsaw is important in terms of the police building a case on Jean’s murder. So just as we have always supported the PSNI in their bid to get the Boston College tapes we think it is entirely justified that they are able to pore over the interviews the paper and the broadcaster carried out.”
McKendry also called on police in the Republic to arrest Price.
He added: “She is living openly in Malahide, north Dublin, so I don’t see why the Garda (police) cannot arrest and question her about what she said in her very own words.
“I was at Jean’s inquest and all the evidence pointed to her being shot dead in County Louth in the Irish Republic, which means the crime was committed in the Garda’s jurisdiction. So it’s up to the Garda to question her.”
