Welcome for Martin Corey release - Sinn Féin MLA Raymond McCartney
Commenting on the decision by the High Court in Belfast to release Lurgan Republican Martin Corey, Sinn Féin Assembly member Raymond McCartney said:
“The decision by the court in Belfast today to release Lurgan man Martin Corey is a welcome move. Like in Marion Price’s case it is unacceptable that you can be imprisoned by the decision of a British Secretary of State to revoke a licence and place no evidence or proof before a court.
“Since Martin’s arrest Sinn Féin have been to the fore in demanding his release. We have visited Martin on a regular basis and raised his case repeatedly with the British and Irish governments.
“The British government now need to end the pursuit of Martin Corey and drop any further attempts to intern him in the way they have.”
