Following visit McCann calls for immediate release of Marian Price

5 February, 2013 - by Jennifer McCann

Sinn Féin MLA Jennifer McCann said Marian Price should be released immediately. The Junior Minister was speaking after visiting Marian Price and said her health has deteriorated since the death of her sister Dolours.

The West Belfast MLA said:

“It is a disgrace and totally unjust that yet again the date for Marian Price ‘s Parole Commission hearing has been put back.

“It is clear that her health has worsened since the death of her sister Dolours and it serves no purpose whatsoever to keep her in custody.

“Marian Price has already been granted bail on the charges she faces, yet is unjustly held at the dictate of the British Secretary of State. She should be released on bail immediately.

“I met Justice Minister David Ford last week concerning this case and again call on him to intercede and ensure that justice is served and this clearly unwell woman is released immediately.”
