On May 27th in Belfast there will be a march to highlight the ongoing internment and torture of Marian Price. The march will leave Beechmount avenue at 2.30pm and arrive at Slievegallion drive for a rally. The rally will be addressed by Marian’s husband Jerry McGlinchey and others.
Marian has been held in isolation for over a year despite being granted bail by the courts. Last week one of the charges she faced was dismissed.. The public at this point questioned why Marian remained in prison given the charge that led to her arrest had been dismissed.
The Public Prosecution Service were prompt to respond and announce their plans to continue with the investigation. Many see this as a stalling tactic designed to facilitate Marian’s continued internment. It must be stated the other charges Marian was bailed on are charges based on third party hear say evidence.
British secretary of State Owen Paterson justified sending Marian back to prison last May by claiming to have revoked the licence she was released on when close to death in 1980. However six days after her release Marian received the royal prerogative of mercy (pardon) which made redundant the licence she was previously released on.
The British authorities have claimed to have lost or shredded this pardon. There has been no investigation to try to locate this crucial piece of evidence as Marian’s legal team are confident this document could secure her release.
At this point Marian is chronically ill and in need of urgent medical intervention. Despite recommendations by health care professionals to have Marian treated in hospital she remains in prison on bail. This week Marian will be assessed by a doctor appointed by the United Nations. Marian has been subjected to what experts define as torture and denied the most basic of human rights.
The justice for Marian campaign and Marian’s family would call on the public to support Marian by joining the march on May 27th. The event is organised by independent human rights activists and is not affiliated to any group or organisation
