Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams has been released from custody tonight, after being questioned over the 1972 murder of Jean McConville. He has yet to emerge from the Antrim police station where he has been held since Wednesday.
Police will now send a file to the public prosecutor's office, which will decide whether to charge him.
It is unlikely that the current director of the PPS will make the ultimate decision, as he previously acted as Mr Adams's lawyer, as Political Correspondent Carl Dinnen reports.
