Justice for Marian Price

“It’s in the nature of this judicial system that one is condemned not only in innocence but also in ignorance.” – Kafka’s The Trial.

The treatment of Marian Price is a scenario akin to one described in Kafka’s novel, The Trial, whereby it describes the prisoner’s arrest, imprisonment, and prosecution by a remote, inaccessible authority, with the nature of his crime revealed to neither him nor the reader. Similarily Marian Price finds herself in this situation.

The justification of Marian Price’s imprisonment has been claimed by British Secretary of State Owen Patterson, to be on the revocation of her licence, dating back to 1980. This is contrary to the fact that Marian’s release was on the basis of the Royal Prerogative of Mercy due to life threatening illness after serving a lengthy prison sentence.

The British authorities have stated that they have shredded her pardon, a document which would have secured her release according to her solicitor Peter Corrigan. Questions must be raised as to why this document was shredded, thirty years after it was issued and at the time when it would have been admitted as evidence for any subsequent hearing in relation to her imprisonment and revocation of her licence.

Subsequently, Marian Price is suffering from serious health issues, a direct consequence of nine months of isolation in an all male prison. She has since been referred to the healthcare centre at Hydebank Wood where all female prisoners are imprisoned. It has been alleged that the recent move for Marian Price came as a result of clinical advice given by the South Eastern Healthcare Trust.

At a recent meeting, in regard to the Plight of Marian Price a panel of guests including Peter Corrigan, Marian Price’s Solicitor, Bernadette McAliskey, Monsignor Raymond Murray and others discussed the situation of Marian Price and the conclusion became apparent that we must all call for the release of Marian Price, and stand against Interment by Revocation of Licence.
