Sinn Fein has denied the allegations levelled by Mr Rogers. Mr Adams has repeatedly said he was never amember of the IRA while Mr McGuinness claims to have left the organisation in 1974.
Rogers is not the first IRA escappe to have been involved in a gun attack on Gardai. Eddie Gallagher, another IRA escapee, was involved in a siege in 1975 when a garda was injured during a shooting incident. Mr Gallagher blasted his way out of Portlaoise Prison in 1974.
