Another Belfast lawyer, who did not want to be named, added: "The main problem with historic crimes is that it doesn't offer the defendant an opportunity to provide an alibi, simply because in the passage of time your memory fades."
Nuala O'Loan, a former Northern Ireland police ombudsman who in 2006 investigated the police's handling of the murder, disagreed. "I am quite sure the police would not have arrested Mr Adams had they not felt that they had the reasons to do so."
British Prime Minister David Cameron said there was absolutely no political interference, a view echoed by Peter Robinson, First Minister of Northern Ireland.
Michael McConville, who was 11 when he witnessed his widowed mother being taken from their Belfast home, said the IRA had warned the family not to go to the police.
Adams, 65, who has always denied membership of the IRA, said he was "innocent of any part" in the killing, which he said was "wrong and a grievous injustice Converse All Star Skimmer Sneakers Shoes
against me. I reject these," he said in a statement.
The chairman of Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny's party, Fine Gael, said Sinn Fein's suggestions of a political motivation were "baseless and desperate".

"It looks like his legal team are surprised that he was detained overnight. I would have thought that if it was to be a pre arranged questioning, as I understand, he probably didn't need to Converse New Edition be arrested," Rice said.

Gerry Adams arrested over 1972 murder
ANTRIM Police in Northern Ireland questioned Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams on Thursday after arresting him under an investigation into one of the province's most notorious murders, a move that stirred fierce political reaction in Britain and Ireland.
"The IRA stopped me from doing it," he told Irish broadcaster RTE. "The IRA said it would kill me or some of my family members."
Reviled by many in Britain as the spokesman for the Irish Republican Army in the 1980s, Adams reinvented himself as a Northern Ireland peacemaker and then as a populist opposition politician in the Irish parliament.
His Sinn Fein party said he was arrested on Wednesday evening by police investigating the 1972 abduction and murder of Jean McConville, a mother of 10 children. (1900 GMT) on Friday, before a judge must rule on whether he can be detained any longer. Under British anti terrorism laws, a suspect can be held for up to 28 days before being charged.
McConville, a Protestant who had married a Catholic, was said to have gone to the aid of a wounded British soldier serving in the province, which was torn by violence between Catholic republicans and pro British Protestants.
Northern Ireland's deputy first minister, former IRA commander Martin McGuinness, said Adams' arrest was a deliberate attempt to influence European and local elections this month, and the "dark side" within the police was to blame.
McConville's body was found in 2003 by a man walking on a beach in County Louth, which Adams now represents in Ireland's parliament. The IRA accused McConville of being an informer for the British, a charge her family has always denied.
The Northern Ireland police took legal steps to acquire the interviews, parts of which have already been released after one IRA interviewee died.
There would be no means for Adams to cross examine the person who provided the recordings, so he could not attack the person's credibility, the lawyer said.
