Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams has revealed that a Sinn Féin delegation, including Caral Ní Chuilin MLA; John O Dowd MLA; Paul Maskey MLA; and Raymond McCartney MLA is visiting Maghaberry today.


Mr. Adams said:


“The situation in Maghaberry is giving cause for serious concern.


I have spoken to the Minister of Justice David Forde on this matter and raised my concerns with him. And I intend meeting him again on this.


Prisoners have rights which must be protected.  They are entitled to be treated with respect and dignity.


The delegation visiting Maghaberry will report back to our Assembly group.


I am also inviting relatives of prisoners and their organisations to meet with us to discuss this issue.”
