Sinn Féin calls for Michael Rogan to be released

13 October, 2004

Commenting after the arrest in Spain of North Belfast man Michael Rogan on foot of British extradition papers, Sinn Féin Assembly member Gerry Kelly said:

"Michael Rogan is one of a small number of people who have fallen into an anomaly which has arisen since the signing of the Good Friday Agreement.

"Michael Rogan has been exiled from his home in Belfast for a number of years.

"Many people will view his arrest in Spain yesterday while on holidays on the foot of British warrants as vindictive and unnecessary. "

" Michael Rogan should be released and allowed to return home to his family in Ireland." ENDS
