Repatriation campaign welcomes council move

Tuesday, 16 July 2013

COUNCIL support for the repatriation of Michael Campbell has been warmly welcomed by those behind the campaign.

Campbell is currently serving a 12-year sentence in Lithuania on a conviction of supporting a terrorist organisation. But the Faughart man is seeking leave to see out his sentence in Ireland.

Praising the “informative and coherent debate” surrounding the issue, a spokesman for campaign said its driving force “has always been the humanitarian aspect”.

“Thus all support for this campaign is a declaration of support for human rights,” he said.

“The Humanitarian aspect of the entire campaign is both the principle and the priority.”

Meanwhile, the Lithuanian Appeals Court has pledged to hear final submissions in the case on August 30, after which a judgement will be made.

“Should the Judgment of the appeals court be accepted by the Lithuanian Prosecutor then Michael can be repatriated forthwith,” the campaign spokesman said.

“If however the Lithuanian Prosecutor decides to appeal this judgment and bring it to a higher court then that decision would determine Michael remaining in Lithuanian custody for at least another two years.

“Principally however Michael Campbell is an Irish Citizen and, as an Irish Citizen held captive in another European Union state, it is within the remit of the Irish Government to have him repatriated at a time of their choosing. “Michael could be repatriated immediately as the Irish government would uphold and implement any sentence handed down by the Lithuanian courts.”
