From RTE News
Is this genuine sympathy from SDLP or is it a false attempt to gain sympathy so as to steal republican/nationalist votes away from Sinn Féin?SDLP leader Alasdair McDonnell has called for the release from prison of Marian Price.

With her sister Dolours, Marian Price was imprisoned for the IRA bombing of the Old Bailey in 1973.
During a campaign to be repatriated to an Irish jail, the sisters were force fed while on hunger strike. Their health suffered and they were released early.
Two years ago Marian Price was rearrested after a dissident republican Easter rally in Derry. She has been in poor health since.
Mr McDonnell says she should be released from prison and if she has a case to answer she should be brought before the courts.
