Adams barred from fundraising on US visit

The BBC are reporting that the US administration have refused to grant Gerry Adams fundraising privileges as part of his visa for a scheduled US visit – no statement from SF yet – and, as a result, he is not expected to will not travel to the US.. although an earlier report in the Belfast Telegraph suggested he would still travel to Canada. It’s a decision that comes after the statement, noted here, from Sinn Féin MP Martin McGuinness that “he [Adams] will not travel to the US” if he was not allowed to fundraise at events and that “Such support is entirely legitimate and indeed necessary in demonstrating that politics works.”.. it also represents a continuation of the restrictions on fundraising in the US, by SF representatives, put in place by the US administration in March this year. Updated to note SF statement in report.
