IRA leadership rejects Northern Bank accusations

In a statement issued on Tuesday night, the leadership of Óglaigh na hÉireann made it absolutely clear that the army was not involved in the £26.5 million 20 December robbery of the Northern Bank in Belfast.

The brief statement reads:

"The IRA has been accused of involvement in the recent Northern Bank robbery.

We were not involved."
