DUP deputy leader Peter Robinson is criticising the Taoiseach for saying at the weekend that he believed all IRA activity had ended.

Speaking after a meeting with the Independent Monitoring Commission in Belfast this morning, Mr Robinson claimed it was clear that the IRA was still involved in criminality.

"I just can't dream as to how the Prime Minister of the Irish Republic could reach a conclusion that criminality is gone," he said.

"Criminality is still going on. Everybody knows it's still going on.

"I think the credibility of the Taoiseach is damaged by remarks such as that and it means that any judgment he makes in the future will be considered to be flawed."
