Decision Of US Court Welcomed

24 April, 2004

Sinn Féin Assembly member Alex Maskey has welcomed the ruling in an American court which allows Belfast man Sean O'Cealleagh, one of the Casement 3, to remain in the US where he has been living for sometime with his wife and young son.

Mr Maskey said:

" Sean O'Cealleagh was displaced as a result of the political conflict in Ireland. I welcome the decision of the court today to allow Sean to remain in the US and continue with the life he has built for himself there with his wife and young son.

" The court recognition of the fact that the charges against Sean O'Cealleagh were political is a also an import step forward." ENDS
