Dear Sir/Madam,

 

We, the undersigned, wish to draw your attention to the continued detention of Marian Price, which we feel constitutes an alarming breach of human and civil rights.

 

Marian had previously served a long jail sentence in England and in the North and was released and pardoned in 1980 due to ill-health resulting from force-feeding over many months in 1973 and 1974.

 

Marian Price was arrested in May 2011 on the basis of charges, which have since been dismissed. At the time she was granted bail for those charges and has also been granted bail on subsequent charges brought against her, yet she remains imprisoned by order of Owen Paterson, British Secretary of State, who claimed to revoke her licence.

 

Marian’s health and welfare are at the forefront of this campaign and she has been declared too ill to attend court after spending over a year in isolation.

 

Marian Price is the victim of psychological torture and internment without trial, and as a result of this her mental health and physical health has deteriorated rapidly. Given the concerns about her very poor health, we are calling for her immediate release based on humanitarian grounds.

 

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Monsignor Raymond Murray, Human Rights Activist; Fr. Peter McVerry SJ, Centre for Faith and Justice; Fr.
