However he said prior to Adams's release on Sunday that the peace process was not at risk over the crisis, nor was the power sharing government under threat from Sinn Fein. Northern Ireland Justice Minister David Ford urged both side to take a step back and let the police do their job.
Deputy first minister Martin McGuinness stopped short of saying Sinn Fein would remove its support for the PSNI, a move that would spark a major crisis. But he added that it would wait to see if the situation was resolved satisfactorily.
