The Adams Family

The Daily Chimp

 

The Daily Chimp does like to pose some challenging questions, that’s for sure.

Mind you to my way of thinking, if the Chimpanzee’s were real journalist they would be answering questions at this stage, not fucking asking them… But perhaps that’s just me.

The question arose following Liam Adams, brother of Sinn Fein President, Gerry Adams, being convicted of raping his own daughter over a six year period starting in  1977  through to 1983.

The dirty, sick, sub-human cunt first raped his daughter Aine, when she was just 4 years old.

The catalogue of abuse that the politicians niece endured beggars belief:

The first time she recalled being raped was while her mother was in hospital giving birth to her younger brother Conor in 1977.

In another incident she was raped by her father at a flat on Belfast’s Antrim Road while her brother was asleep in the bed beside her.

Adams, who was a heavy drinker, also forced his daughter to perform sex acts.

According to the Chimp, Liam Adams – like his brother Gerry – was in the propaganda rags own words; a one-time IRA commander.

Strange how they are no longer IRA Terrorists don’t cha think?

Gerry, apparently  first confronted his brother about the child abuse in 1987, but Liam denied it… Like they do.

Gerry then says that in 2000, Liam admitted to him that he had in fact been abusing his daughter… but did nothing about it.

When the truth finally became public knowledge in 2009 Gerry Adams revealed that his father, also called Gerry and also an IRA Terrorist Commander, had also abused some of his children.

When question by police about why he had done nothing about his brothers confession in 2000, Gerry refused to answer, but later angrily told the press that the police had known about the abuse for over 20 years and did nothing… Sound familiar?

Course, if Gerry knew that the police knew about Liam raping his daughter twenty years ago, it kinda figures that Gerry also knew 20 years ago… Just saying.

And that my friends, is how the Daily Chimp came to pose that difficult question.

“What is the question Spiv, for fucks sake”?

The question is Voice of Reason: Why didn’t Gerry Adams tell the police about his brothers confession back in 2000?

“Do you know the answer Spiv”?

Course I do.

Gerry Adams is a politician and all politicians are either paedophiles or paedophile protectors.

Its the glue that holds them all together and prevents anyone speaking out, don’t cha know.

And whatever ya do, don’t let anyone ever tell you any different.

The younger brother of Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams has been found guilty of raping and sexually assaulting his daughter from the age of four.

Liam Adams, 58, a one-time IRA commander, has been convicted of attacking his child Aine, who waived her right to anonymity to help bring him to justice.

The 40-year-old was attacked over a six-year period between 1977 and 1983 when she was aged between four and nine. 

After the verdicts she said: ‘I can now begin my life at 40 and lay to rest the memory of the five-year-old girl who was abused’.

Bespectacled Adams, who was wearing a grey suit, cream shirt and blue tie, showed no emotion as the guilty verdicts were returned at Belfast Crown Court yesterday.

Adams, who walks with the aid of a stick and used a court hearing aid to follow proceedings, stood between two prison officers in the dock with his hands clasped tightly.

Aine Adams, who was surrounded by family members, wept and clutched her younger sister Sinead for support.

On the other side of the public gallery, Adams’s second wife Bronagh and their daughter Claire, who gave evidence in his defence, also cried. Adams nodded to them as he was led to the cells.

During the trial Aine Adams gave graphic details of the abuse, which started when she was aged four.

The first time she recalled being raped was while her mother was in hospital giving birth to her younger brother Conor in 1977.

In another incident she was raped by her father at a flat on Belfast’s Antrim Road while her brother was asleep in the bed beside her.

 

Adams, who was a heavy drinker, also forced his daughter to perform sex acts.

In a statement read out by a police officer outside the court, Ms Adams said she could finally begin to move on after a long and hard road to achieve justice.

‘I do not see this verdict as a victory or a celebration as it has taken its toll and has caused hurt, heartache and anguish for all those involved,’ she said.

The allegations were first made public when Ms Adams took part in a television documentary in 2009.

A short time later, Gerry Adams revealed his father Gerry Snr, a veteran IRA man, had physically and sexually abused members of his family.

 

Within days of the sex abuse scandal hitting the headlines, Liam Adams fled to the Republic claiming he could not receive a fair trial in Northern Ireland. He handed himself in to police in Co Sligo but could not be detained because the Garda officers did not have the correct documentation.

He was eventually handed over to the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) at the border in November 2011 after losing a lengthy and expensive extradition battle.

The trial opened in April this year but collapsed due to legal reasons and the jury was discharged.

At that time, Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams was called as a prosecution witness. He told the court he confronted his brother about the allegations during a meeting in Buncrana, Co Donegal, in 1987 and Liam Adams had denied the abuse.

He then revealed his brother later confessed while they were out walking together in the rain in Dundalk, Co Louth, in 2000.

Gerry Adams was not called as a prosecution witness for the latest trial, which re-opened before a new jury panel last month.

In her statement given outside Laganside court complex, Ms Adams thanked the media for helping her to tell her story.

She said: ‘I would like to give all my family a special thanks. Without their love, support and understanding I would not be here today.’

She also expressed gratitude to the PSNI’s public protection unit and the Public Prosecution Service.

‘I would now ask for some privacy for my family to reflect on recent trying times,’ she said.

Adams is due to be sentenced next month.

In a statement issued tonight Gerry Adams described the trial of his brother as tough.

The Sinn Fein president said: ‘This has been a difficult and distressing ordeal for all my family and for my niece Aine.

‘I would ask the media to respect our right to space and privacy.

‘I thank the many people who have sent messages of support and solidarity.’

Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams has refused to explain why he did not tell police about his brother’s sex abuse of his niece for nine years.

The republican leader claimed there was a lot of ‘disinformation’ as his younger brother Liam Adams awaited sentencing on November 5, in Belfast, for six years of rape attacks on his daughter Aine.

Liam Adams, 58, a one-time IRA commander, was yesterday convicted of attacking his child, who waived her right to anonymity to help bring him to justice.

The 40-year-old was attacked over a six-year period between 1977 and 1983 when she was aged between four and nine.

Gerry Adams pointed the finger at others when he was asked about when he first became aware of the assaults and why he did not report them in 1987.

He said: ‘The police were aware over 20 years ago and there is a lot of disinformation being flung about in this issue.

‘But let me say this, this has been and continues to be a huge ordeal for my family – we’re a very large family – especially for Aine, but for all members of my family. And I think people need to be given the space to come to terms with all of that.

‘And if it was your family, you would want the same respect and space and privacy on these matters.’

During the trial Aine Adams gave graphic details of the abuse, which started when she was aged four.

The first rape she remembers took place while her mother was in hospital giving birth to her younger brother Conor in 1977.

The allegations about Liam Adams were first made public when his daughter took part in a television documentary in 2009.

A short time later, Gerry Adams revealed his father Gerry Snr, a veteran IRA man, had physically and sexually abused members of his family.

He was a witness in the first trial which collapsed earlier this year. He told Belfast Crown Court he confronted his brother when they met in Buncrana, Co Donegal, in 1987 and that Liam Adams had denied the abuse.

 

He then revealed his brother later confessed while they were out walking together in the rain in Dundalk, Co Louth, in 2000.

Gerry Adams was not called as a prosecution witness for the latest trial, which re-opened before a new jury panel last month.

Called on to explain in more detail his knowledge of his niece’s abuse today and whether he has a relationship with her, Mr Adams refused to discuss the case further.

‘I’m not going to talk about any of these matters beyond what I have said. It has been a very difficult ordeal for everybody in the family,’ he said.

Mr Adams was asked to explain why he did not warn authorities in Co Louth in 2003 that allegations had been made about his brother, who was working with children in Dundalk at the time.

Mr Adams went on to be elected for the Irish parliament for the area in 2011.

‘I have answered all of those questions in some detail, in a number of very extensive interviews. The trial is only over yesterday. I have said what I need to say on all of that and we just need a bit of space to come to terms with that,’ he said.

The Sinn Fein leader also rejected local media headlines which questioned whether he was fit for public office.

‘Thankfully that isn’t in the hands of the Belfast Telegraph. That’s in the hands of citizens,’ he said.

‘I’m very proud and privileged to represent the people of Louth and to represent Sinn Fein. I don’t take that for granted. It’s a huge honour to represent Sinn Fein. It’s a huge honour to have the support of your peers.

‘All of these issues were rehearsed before the election and during the election campaign. So that’s where I get my mandate from – not from the Telegraph in Belfast.’

When pressed for a second time about going to the police at an early opportunity, this time in 2000 after his brother confessed, Mr Adams refused to address the issue.

‘Again I have answered that question in detail. You seem to be, with respect, just ignoring what I’m saying,’ he said.

‘Bear with me, bear with me, let me finish the point I’m making. The point I’m making is that this is a traumatic ordeal for Aine, but for all of my family and we do need the space to deal with all of these matters and that’s what I respectfully ask you to do.’

Mr Adams was forced to answer the questions as he joined party colleagues at the front of the Dail parliament in Dublin to promote referendums taking place at the end of this week.

Irish Taoiseach Enda Kenny said he would not comment on the Adams case but said everyone with information on abuse should know their responsibilities.

‘I don’t want to comment on the personal circumstances that apply in any family,’ Mr Kenny said.

‘I have read the reports more than anybody else about this.

‘Clearly, the issue of paedophilia is something that is of such sensitivity and importance that where information about this is known, it should be made known to the authorities, of course.’
