Archive: Chief Constable Annesley on links between IRA and Sinn Féin

Former RUC Chief Constable Sir Hugh Annesley, in an interview with the BBC in summer 1996, spoke about the links between Sinn Féin and the IRA.

"There is no doubt in my mind that, at the top, the republican movement - the Provisional IRA and Sinn Féin - are inextricably linked," he said.
