Sinn Féin MP Elisha McCallion has repeated her party’s call for the immediate release of imprisoned Derry man, Tony Taylor.
Speaking after visiting Tony Taylor in Maghaberry today, the Foyle MP said:
“I led a Sinn Féin delegation made up of Martina Anderson MEP, Raymond McCartney MLA and the Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, councillor Maolíosa McHugh, into Maghaberry Prison to visit imprisoned Derry man, Tony Taylor.
“His ongoing detention is wrong and is an affront to democracy an the justice system.
“We were told today that he is now being detained on ‘probability’, not facts or evidence.
“The continued detention of Tony is also placing a considerable strain on his wife, family and parents.
“Tony Taylor should be released immediately and we want to see a united voice coming from this city and beyond to end this injustice and see him released immediately.” Ends/Críoch
