Former political prisoners need to check insurance policies - Pat Sheehan
Sinn Féin West Belfast MLA Pat Sheehan said former political prisoners should follow the advice issued by Coiste na nIarchimí and check their car and home insurance policies.
Coiste na nIarchimí has called on former political prisoners to check their policies in order to make sure they are still covered regardless of their prison sentence.
The West Belfast MLA and former political prisoner said:
“There is obviously a loop-hole in some policies were if you have been sentenced to more than two and a half years and don’t pro-actively contact your insurance company to let them know of this fact, then you actually may not be insured.
“Coiste na nIarchimí said that this refers to just some insurance companies and I want to reiterate the call for former prisoners to contact their insurance company to get confirmation that they are still insured regardless of their prison sentence.
“Former political prisoners can contact the Coiste office for further information or for assistance. Telephone 028 90200770 or email i[email protected]”
