Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Colombia Three should be given time and space to rebuild lives

18 August, 2005

Sinn Féin spokesperson on Justice Aengus Ó Snodaigh TD has called for the Colombia Three to be allowed time and space to get over the trauma of the last four years. Deputy Ó Snodaigh made his comments after it emerged that the three men voluntarily presented themselves to the Gardaí today.

Deputy Ó Snodaigh said, "Sinn Féin is of the firm view that these men have no case whatsoever to answer and that they should be allowed to get on with the process of rebuilding their lives.

"In his media interview after returning home Jim Monaghan said that then men were not on the run and had no difficulty in making themselves available to speak to the Gardaí, if they were requested to do so.

"Today the men went voluntarily to speak with the Gardaí.

"The men should now be given the time and space to get on with their lives here in Ireland with their families." ENDS
