Sinn Féin MLAs press Justice Minister on Marian Price case

21 May, 2012 - by Jennifer McCann


Sinn Féin MLA Jennifer McCann said she has pressed Justice Minister David Ford to take the necessary steps to have Marian Price moved to an outside hospital.

The West Belfast MLA was speaking following a meeting with the Minister accompanied by fellow Sinn Féin MLAs Sean Lynch and Raymond McCartney regarding the continued imprisonment of Marian Price.

Jennifer McCann said:

“Marian Price should be released immediately. Her continued imprisonment is an affront to natural justice. On humanitarian terms alone she should be moved to an outside hospital never mind the fact that her continued imprisonment damages public confidence in the justice system.

“In the absence of her release we pressed the Minister to take immediate steps to have Marian Price moved to an outside hospital.

“Considering her physical and mental conditional it is imperative that the Minister act swiftly so that Marian Price can get the care she most obviously needs.”
