Sinn Féin MLA repeats call for Marian Price release

27 September, 2012 - by Jennifer McCann

Sinn Féin MLA Jennifer McCann said the continued imprisonment of Marian Price was totally unjustifiable and she should be released immediately.

The West Belfast MLA was speaking after a Derry court was told that UN doctors as well as prison and defence doctors all concurred that she was too ill to stand trial as she is unable to give instructions to her defence team.

Jennifer McCann said:

“It is clear once again that Marian Price is unfit to stand trial and should be released immediately.

“The added weight of the UN doctors opinion alongside both prison and defence doctors all agreeing that she is unable to give instructions to her defence team makes her continued imprisonment unjustifiable.

“There should be no delay as her further detention is an affront to natural justice.”
