Mr McGuinness said;

“During my meeting with British Secretary of State James Brokenshire today I repeated Sinn Féin’s call for the release of Derry man Tony Taylor.

“Tony Taylor was sent to prison on the word of the James Brokenshire’s predecessor without brining forward any evidence.

“I raised this directly with James Brokenshire today and told him the continued detention of Tony Taylor is unacceptable and made it clear that , in the absence of due process, he should be released immediately.”
