Sinn Féin call for immediate release of Brendan Lillis

8 February, 2011


Sinn Féin MLA for West Belfast, Pat Sheehan, has called for the immediate release of Brendan Lillis, currently being held in Maghaberry Prison.


Speaking today

“Sinn Féin is totally opposed to former political prisoners being held in prison by revoking their licence.

“Now that the charges against Brendan Lillis are not being brought forward he should be released immediately.

“Given the urgency of Brendan Lillis’ medical condition he should not be in prison.

“Sinn Féin has been in contact with Owen Patterson, the British Secretary of State, and the Sentence Review Commission and we have called on them to deal with this case without delay.”
