Hungerstrike for Brendan Lillis: BBC Radio

On BBC Radio Foyle Derry today, ex Mayor Colm Eastwood has shortly presented the case for the Release of Brendan Lillis.

Brendan Lillis, a 59 year old former Life-sentence political prisoner from West Belfast, in Ireland, is currently desperately ill in the medical wing of the notorious Maghaberry prison, in County Antrim. He suffers from the intensely painful and progressive disease called Ankylosing Spondylitis which due to other medical complications has left himunable to move from his bed for 14 months and his weight has dropped to a perilous 6 stones (38.1 Kilos !). Due to a series of serious infections and medication which has compromised his immune system, Mr Lillis has been unable to eat, sleep or hold down even liquids for a period close to a month and is constant agony. In short, his health has deteriorated to such an extent that his partner Roisin, who is his only contact with the outside world, fears that he will die in his prison bed!

Justice Minister David Ford who is politically responsible for the recent deaths in the Maghaberry prison in Northern Ireland, decided that the hearing with the commissioners planned for tommorow in the Maghaberry prison, will be only a ‘preliminary hearing to determine the date for a hearing’.  It is clear that he is just waiting for Brendan’s death.

There was not yet any reaction of  Sinn Féin that called some days ago for the ‘immediate release of Brendan Lillis’.
