SINN Féin MLA Raymond McCartney has called for the immediate release of Derry man Tony Taylor as he approaches 600 days of imprisonment.
Tony Taylor was thrown back in jail in March 2016 by the then Tory Secretary of State Theresa Villiers on the word of MI5.
Speaking after meeting Tony Taylor this week the Foyle MLA:
“As we approach 600 days of his incarceration I repeat Sinn Féin’s call for the immediate release of Derry man Tony Taylor.
“I visited him just last week in Maghaberry and he should either be released immediately or brought before a court and given due process.
“We have long campaigned for Tony’s release.
“His arrest and imprisonment without recourse to due process is a practice that is totally unacceptable and needs to end immediately.
“The continued use of unjust powers by the British government to revoke a person’s license without producing any evidence of wrongdoing is an affront to human rights and natural justice,” added the Foyle MLA.
