Lady Macbeth Sleepwalks with Blood on her Hands

THE ongoing internment of Martin Corey is an affront to his human rights and natural justice said former hunger striker Raymond McCartney MLA last Thursday after he met with the Viceroyal of British Occupied Ireland, Theresa Villiers, to discuss his continued internment.

The ongoing internment of Martin Corey is an affront to his human rights and natural justice said former hunger striker Raymond McCartney MLA last Thursday after he met with the Viceroyal of British Occupied Ireland, Theresa Villiers, to discuss his continued internment.

63-year-old Martin Corey, who previously served almost 20 years in prison for the shooting of two paramilitary RUC men in 1972, was released on licence in 1992. The RUC at the time, were going into the homes of ordinary innocent nationalist civilians and shooting whole families dead, in an area known as the murder triangle. Martin who volunteered originally for night patrols to protect his village, realized as a result that the only defence his neighbours, had were the IRA, so he volunteered
Martin twenty years later after release, became self-employed and worked as a grave digger, before being interned without trial over three and a half years ago. He has not been charged with any offence and despite being entitled to annual parole hearings, has not been in front of Parole Commissioners, who decide if he should be released, for over two years. Martin's legal team say a parole hearing, due to take place a few weeks ago was once again postponed, without an alternative date being discussed.

A number of reasons given for the delay, include blaming Martin's legal team, for challenging his internment in the European Court of Human Rights, who ruled in 2012, that it was unacceptable, to deny an annual parole hearing, to anyone held in custody. The Secretary of State in a recent statement stated, ‘an individual who served a life sentence, can be returned to prison, if they pose a risk to the public or commit further offences.” Since Martin’s arrest in April 2010, he has not been charged with any crime or given any reason waht so ever, as to what risk he is to the public. He has now served the equivalent of a seven year jail sentence, without any trial, charge or explanation. This is political internment without trial.

Last year, a Belfast judge ordered Martin Corey's immediate release on unconditional bail, because he was interned on the basis of secret evidence. But while Martin waited inside at the exit entrance and his loved ones outside to be released, the heartless, unelected British Viceroyal, over-ruled the judge and ordered Martin to be interned indefinitely again.

Assembly member Raymond McCartney, said that British Viceroyal Theresa Villiers, tried to wash her hands of the case and was “of no help whatsoever” in last Thursday's meeting with her.[[quote]] [[quote]]“Martin Corey is now in prison for three and a half years without having been charged, questioned or his legal representatives shown the alleged evidence that is against him.
“His latest parole hearing has been postponed yet again. Martin Corey has had no parole hearing since 2011. His continued imprisonment is unacceptable and an affront to his human rights and natural justice.[[/quote]]

“Sinn Féin will be meeting with Justice Minister David Ford in the coming weeks to press him to bring this injustice to an end. The British Secretary of State was of no help whatsoever and attempted to wash her hands of the case.
“If there is evidence to show that Martin Corey is a risk to the public it should be put before him and his legal team so that it can be challenged. Natural justice is being denied to this man and it needs to end.”

Martin's treatment contrasts sharply with Orange Order Loyalist Stephen Irwin, perpetrator of the Greysteel Massacre who was released early on Martin's bithday after being convicted to carry out some more British State Terrorism. The British Viceroyal is attempting to provoke republicans, with the injustice of their internment without charge, and prejudiced secret evidence against Martin Corey, with the same injustice, that fuelled the conflict for more than the last 40 years. One does not have to be particularly bright to understand that enduring peace in ireland with such Britishprovocative injustice, is simply impossible, justifying massive MI5 bloated budgets, to the British taxpayer using the terrorist narrative.

That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here,
And fill me from the crown to the toe top-full
Of direst cruelty![[/quote]]
