Marian Price ‘refuses to meet Sinn Fein’ during prison visit

Sinn Fein have said Old Bailey bomber Marian Price has refused to meet them during a visit to Hydebank women’s prison.

The party’s MLAs Sean Lynch and Jennifer McCann visited the jail on Wednesday with a view to meeting Price.

They said Price had refused to meet them, but that they had met with prison officials and inspected “her living conditions”.

Last month, Price was moved to Hydebank from Maghaberry jail.

“We visited Hydebank today and repeat our call for the immediate release of Marian Price,” the Sinn Fein MLAs said.

“Given the fact that she has been bailed on the charges she was originally arrested for, there is no justification whatsoever for her continued detention.

“Sinn Fein is against the revoking of licenses and if there is any evidence against someone it should be brought before a court of law.

“Marian Price’s continued detention is a serious concern given her medical condition and she should be released immediately so that her medical needs can be addressed adequately.”

The prison service has told the BBC previously that the decision to move Price to Hydebank was taken on clinical advice from healthcare staff at the South Eastern Trust.

It said that since being returned to prison last year, the prison service and the trust have, on a number of occasions, discussed and reviewed her needs while in custody.

Price was returned to prison last May after appearing at a dissident republican rally in Derry and has since been charged in connection with the murders of two soldiers at Masserene in March 2009, a charge she denies.
