Minister must end confusion over Magilligan prison

20 June, 2014 - by Cathal Ó hOisín

Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Ó hOisín has said that the Justice Minister David Ford must end the confusion in relation to the future of Magilligan Prison.

 Mr Ó hOisín said,

 “The future of the prison at Magilligan is again in doubt after the Minister stated he was unable to guarantee that the planned new build will go ahead.

 “The minister has only added to the uncertainty by these remarks and needs to take a more assertive position on the future of this prison.

 “I am however, concerned that as the prison conditions deteriorate it will fall below the minimum standards needed for the proper care of prisoners.

 “The minister now needs to be clarify his intention on the future of prison provision across the North as the current prison facilities are no longer acceptable.”
