Due to the ongoing internment of Marian Price and the rapid deterioration in her health, we in the Justice for Marian campaign feel it appropriate to seek answers to the following questions
- Are Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness and Justice Minister David Ford aware that Marian's treatment has been defined by experts as torture and is therefore in direct conflict with the human rights legislation?
- Are they aware of any action being taken to recover Marian,s pardon-claimed to be lost or shredded?
- Would they agree this is an obstruction of justice?
We would like to remind those in Stormont that internment and the abuse of prisoners in the past played a key role in the continuation of the problems in the North.The treatment of Marian Price is reminiscent of the darkest days of the conflict when the government showed scant regard for human rights. Clearly lessons have not been learned.
