Republican arrested in Spain should be allowed to return home

18 August, 2005

Commenting after the arrest of a Dundalk republican in Spain on the foot of a German extradition warrant, Sinn Féin TD for Louth Arthur Morgan said:

"This man has lived openly in Ireland for many years with his family. Reports indicate that he has been arrested in Spain whilst on holiday on the foot of an extradition warrant from Germany which relates to matters over a decade old.

"It is my firm view this man should be released and allowed to return home to his family in Ireland without any further delay." ENDS
