    Martin Corey

    Just reading on another forum that political internee and Lurgan Republican, Martin Corey, who has been held in Maghaberry without charge since April 2010 has been released. It's a disgrace he was ever held. Very few other places in the west would this type of thing be allowed to happen.

    Hopefully the other internees are released soon.

    Is this a personal brain fart or a serious OP?

    Fantastic news.

    Regardless of your opinions on republicans holding someone prisoner and refusing to reveal why (meaning he can't defend himself) is a disgrace.

    Very embarrassing for the Brits to be found to be violating a persons human rights by their own court.

    "They considered open evidence of alleged involvement with dissident republicans, and confidential material of which neither Corey nor his representatives had sight."

    What the fukk?

    More from the BBC article;

    "The judge found that the open evidence did not advance the Northern Ireland Secretary's case against Corey, meaning that the decision was solely based on closed material.

    Mr Justice Treacy also ruled that the Parole Commissioners misdirected themselves in law and failed to provide a sufficient safeguard against the lack of full disclosure."

    Scandalous to say the least.

    This is brilliant news. There was no justification for the internment of this man and hopefully now he can get back to his family. The use of internment by the British is something that the mainstream media seem to shy away from covering, perhaps it is to cover the asses of the political establishment who approve of it.

    BBC

    On Monday, a judge ruled that parole commissioners breached his human rights in refusing to release him ... But his licence was revoked in 2010 over unspecified allegations he was involved with dissident republicans.
    It's not internment. Really, it's not...
