    OFFENSIVE RESONSE FROM NIO re BRENDAN LILLIS

    Several members of the Irish Freedom Committee received this insulting form letter from the NIO earlier today. What the hell is this office for then?!? Are we wrong does it not seat the Justice Minister?!? What a bunch of sorry, useless buck-passers. RELEASE BRENDAN LILLIS NOW! From: NIOISWeb Sent: Tue, May 24, 2011 8:51:40 AM Subject: RE: Contact Us > Web Feedback Form Thank you for your e mail. However this is not a matter for the NIO. You may wish to contact the Northern Ireland Prison Service ( DoJNI) Department of Justice Northern Ireland. NIO Web Team From: info@nio.gov.uk [mailto:info@nio.gov.uk] Sent: 12 May 2011 21:49 To: NIOISWeb Subject: NIO: Contact Us > Web Feedback Form The following enquiry was received today: first name: xxxxxxxxx last name: xxxxxxxxx contact email: xxxxxxxxx enquiry: I am writing from the Irish Freedom Committee to urge the immediate compassionate release from prison of Brendan Lillis, a seriously ill prisoner who is being held without charge at Maghaberry prison outside of Belfast. Brendan suffers from a painful and incurable condition called ankylosing spondylitis, which has rendered him bedridden for many months, and who has been deemed in a January 2010 High Court ruling to be unfit to stand trial. Despite this, and despite the charges against him subsequently being dropped, this man remains held in isolat ion, bedridden, with no access to fresh air or the outside world, denied the regular physical therapy that he badly needs, and without the specialist medical care that could ease the remainder of life he still has. I am aware that Brendan Lillis is protected under the European Convention on Human Rights, and that the continued detention of this man is in contraindication of Article 5, the Right to Liberty and Security – specifically the duty the state owes Brendan to inform him of the reason for his continued detention; and Article 6, the Right to a Fair Trial. I am also aware that Brendan Lillis has a protected right under the EU HR Convention to the Provision of Medical Services under Article 2 the Right to Life. Please immediately release Brendan Lillis back to his family and to seek specialist care for his rare, incurable and painful medical condition. This man is a threat to no-one in this condition, and his release is the right and humane thing to do ! xxxxxxxx This email was received from the INTERNET and scanned by the Government Secure Intranet anti-virus service supplied by Cable&Wireless Worldwide in partnership with MessageLabs.

    Mr. Lillis has been held in an inhumane manner for over a year. His body weight has decreased by almost half. The reason given for not releasing him to a hospital where he can get adequate care was: “His condition might improve.” This blatantly shows the intent of Maghaberry Prison, Antrim, Northern Ireland, to end his life. This is tantamount to murder. The doctor at the prison clinic admits Brendan Lillis cannot be provided with the care he needs at the prison. He must be released immediately.
