The ultimate decision on whether to charge Gerry Adams in connection with the 1972 Jean McConville murder now lies with Northern Ireland's Public Prosecution Service (PPS), and will be made at a later date.
It is unlikely that the current director of the PPS Barra McGrory QC, will make the ultimate decision, as he has previously acted as Mr Adams's lawyer. It is likely he will delegate the decision to a colleague.
