The President of
the Workers’ Party, Michael Finnegan, has expressed his frustration on behalf of party members at the delay in the release
of Sean Garland.
Mr. Finnegan said,
“In order for Sean to be released we are required to provide up to date medical reports as to his condition. As these are specialist reports it is taking some time to do so.
We are working to obtain these in the fastest possible time. As soon as
that is done we will make our application for Sean’s release. We are fully
confident that such an application will be successful”.
“In the meantime
Sean, his family and party members are heartened by the continuing messages of support and solidarity which we are receiving
from at home and abroad. We will keep people fully informed of the situation. We repeat our demand that this ludicrous request from Condoleezza Rice should be rejected
out of hand”.
