‘Timeframe for Tony Taylor parole hearing must be met’ says MLA after meeting with the Derry man in prison

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.

“He has now been imprisoned for over two years and to date, the British Government has consistently failed to produce any evidence which could in any way justify his continued detention.

“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.”
