Open Letter to Diane Penaueau of the European Council for the Prevention of Torture

http://fenianexile.blogspot.com/2011/05/justice-fo<…

I just emailed to  Diane Penaueau of the European Council for the Prevention of Torture, asking for them to help in bringing justice and compassion to the Irish Political Prisoners in Maghaberry Prison, at behest of Caroline Kelly.

Please, if you even have 5 minutes, take the time to send a similiar message to Diane, at : cpt.doc@coe.int and bbernath@apt.ch and let her know about this grevious injustice in Maghaberry Prison !

Dear Diane Penaueau,

I felt the need to highlight the injustice taking place in HMP Maghaberry Prison in Maghaberry, Lisburn, Northern Ireland, whereby it has come to my attention, that despite all the peaceful and nonviolent efforts of the Irish Political Prisoners there, they were consistently, forcibly strip searched, unmercifully beaten, and several of their number, thrown into solitary confinement, and continue to live in inhumane conditions that are a clear violation of their rights, a clear violation of human rights and the European Convention on Human Rights, and , speaking specifically, regards, Political Prisoner, Brendan Lillis, his continued detention, while the Prison Authorities refuse to give Brendan proper medical care, and insist, instead to drug him, as he continually suffers from the incurable medical condition, known as ankylosing spondylitis , is in clear violation of Article 5, the Right to Liberty and Security, and Article 6, the Right to a Fair Trial.

As a colleague recently stated, Brendan Lillis, also has a protected right under the EU HR Convention to the Provision of Medical Services under Article 2 the Right to Life.

Brendan Lillis and his fellow Political Prisoners are being held in inhumane conditions due to their political convictions and I urge you and your colleagues to investigate this injustice and let the world know that while Brendan Lillis and his fellow Political Prisoners are held in these unjust conditions, we will not rest until justice is done.

Sincerely,

Rory Dubhdara, New Brunswick, NJ, USA
