Martin has never been given an explanation for his re-arrest. He has no charges preferred against him and the British Government has, to all intents and purposes, interned him.
We are all well aware of the contemptuous attitude of the British Government to Irish political prisoners. Nevertheless, surely at such a time a man who has lived and worked in Lurgan for 19 of the last 21 years, could be shown some compassion.
Martin eventually had to take a judicial review of his internment, which is currently before the courts.
Unfortunately this is not the only time a POW has been refused parole. Gavin McKenna, also of Lurgan, was refused parole to attend his father’s funeral just weeks ago. And not unlike Martin’s case, Gavin’s father died suddenly also.
