Steele Review recommendations require early introduction of segregation

8 September, 2003

Sinn Féin Prison Spokesperson Cllr Michael Browne has said that the recommendations from the Steele Review into safety at Maghaberry should lead to the early introduction of segregation.

Cllr Browne said:

"The setting up of this Review was a tacit admission that forced integration does not work. There is no logic in trying to force politically hostile prisoners to live together in prison.

"Now that the NIO have accepted the recommendations of Steele Review into prison safety it is a question of when and how segregation will be applied across the board.

"It is a question of commonsense." ENDS
