‘An affront to justice’ - MLA

Foyle Sinn Féin MLA Raymond McCartney has said the continued imprisonment of republican Martin Corey is an affront to human rights and justice.

Mr McCartney was speaking after Sinn Féin met with British Secretary of State Teresa Villiers concerning the Lurgan man’s imprisonment.

“Martin Corey is now in prison for three and a half years without having been charged, questioned or his legal representatives shown the alleged evidence that is against him.”
