BBC NEWS | Northern Ireland | We can't tolerate crime - Adams

Any republicans involved in criminality should be expelled from the movement, Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams has said.
"No republican worthy of the name can be involved in criminality of any kind," he told crowds of about 1,000 at an IRA memorial unveiling in Strabane.

Sinn Fein's Martin McGuinness agreed with Gerry Adams that the current situation was very serious but his party would not tolerate any criminal links within its ranks.

Also in today, but carefully avoided on the BBC as far as I can see:

Telegraph | News

Gerry Adams and Martin McGuinness, the Sinn Fein leaders, were publicly named as members of the IRA's Army Council in an unprecedented move by the Irish government yesterday.


But as the Independant Monitoring Commission point out "Sinn Fein have a different idea of what criminality consits off".

Carefully avoided on the BBC? Not true. It was on their news report last night, I'm pretty sure, and it's here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/northern_ireland/4282459.stm

Instinctive tendencies to criticize the BEEB seem always to reflect badly on those engaging in it. What is the perfection to which we should aspire? Fox?

"expelled from the movement" makes a change from having your kneecaps smashed with a baseball bat, the more traditional way among the boggies
