Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Disappointment expressed at Pól Brennan decision

17 August, 2009 - by Gerry Kelly

Commenting on the news that Long Kesh escapee Pól Brennan has lost his final appeal against deportation from the US, Sinn Féin Assembly member Gerry Kelly said:

“Pól Brennan is married to a US citizen and has lived there for over 20 years.

“It is desperately disappointing for Pól and his family that the US authorities have rejected his final appeal to remain resident there.

“It now seems that Pól will be deported back to Ireland in the coming days. Sinn Féin have been making representations on Pól’s behalf to the US authorities and we will continue to work with him and his family in the time ahead.” ENDS
