Derry prisoner Tony Taylor’s parole hearing should be held as soon as possible and within the agreed time frame, says a local MLA.
The Sinn Féin Justice spokesperson Raymond McCartney was speaking after meeting with Mr Taylor in Maghaberry earlier this week.
Raymond McCartney said: “During a visit to Maghaberry Prison I had an opportunity to meet with Derry man Tony Taylor who is currently being wrongfully detained.
“The Parole Commissioner has previously agreed to grant Tony a parole hearing within twelve months. This timeframe must be met and the hearing held as soon as possible.
“Tony Taylor’s continued detention is wrong and a clear violation of his human rights, he should be released immediately.”
