Release Marian Price - Adams

14 May, 2013 - by Gerry Adams TD


Speaking in the Dáil this afternoon Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams TD called on the British government to release Marian Price and Martin Corey and he urged the Irish government to raise these cases directly with the British.

Teachta Adams said: “Marian Price has been in detention for 2 years and should be released immediately.

“She is a seriously-ill woman who has spent the majority of her time in detention in isolation.  She is being held without charge or trial or due process.

“Marian’s condition has also deteriorated in the last week. She has serious problems with her immune system and is at heightened risk of infection.  Consequently, she has been moved back to the City Hospital.

“The Irish government should seek her release. I understand the parole board is due to make a decision on her case shortly. Marian Price, like Martin Corey should be released.”
