Sinn Fein worker admits being agentSinn Fein worker admits being agent
Thursday, 19th January 2006

Republicans in Co Fermanagh have been reeling from the news that a Sinn Fein election worker has been a Special Branch agent for more than 20 years.

In a statement issued through his solicitor, Sean Lavelle, from Donagh near Lisnaskea, says he was recruited as an agent after being arrested in the early `80`s.

Sinn Fein say the revelations are an example of political policing.

The PSNI says it will seek to enhance its intelligence gathering capability by every lawful means as part of its duty to protect the community.
