Statement from Republican Prisoners Roe 4 Maghaberry 26/07/16
Over recent weeks Republican Prisoners have noted increasing repression towards Republican Prisoners by the Jail Administration. During this time we have also witnessed the appointment of another Unionist Stormont Justice Minister, with DUP fundamentalists obtaining key positions also on the Justice Committee. Similarly, we have witnessed the appointment of a British Secretary of State with a background in security under a Thatcher style British Prime Minister.
It is against this backdrop that a new panel is being established under the Fresh Start Agreement to review the operation of the Republican Wing.
