Visteon: Adams calls for full investigation
New documents have been obtained by Sinn Féin which Gerry Adams believes confirm the existence of corrupt practices by Visteon and of efforts by them to destroy company records and conceal their involvement in the displacement of jobs and investment, especially from Belfast (under their so-called ‘Cummins D3’ project).
The west Belfast MP said:
“This new evidence, which I am passing to the British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and to the Pensions Regulator, makes it imperative that a full investigation is urgently undertaken into the Visteon scandal.”
Adams reiterated his firm belief that the rights of former Visteon employees to full pensions must be honoured.
