Law will deal with Colombia Three - Ahern

The Taoiseach has said that the plight of the Colombia Three now rests with the legal process.

Speaking in Co Cavan, Bertie Ahern was asked what he will do to assure Ian Paisley and DUP that the Government is not harbouring terrorists here.

"This issue has to be totally followed by a legal process in our international contributions. It will all be done as per the legal criteria," Mr Ahern said.

I commend the Taoiseach for his calm response to a farcical question about 'assuring' Ian Paisley and the DUP.

For years, Paisley has told the Republic to butt out of the North's affairs and now here we are in 2005 and this hypocrite is now himself butting in to the Republic's affairs!

Ahern is of course spot on. We live in a civilised society under a constitution and issues such as these must be followed by the necessary legal procedure.

We can't make a mockery of our justice system. We're not Colombia...
