MAGHABERRY, VISITATORI SOTTOPOSTI A STRIP SEARCHES

Denuniciati arbitrari ‘strip searches’ ai danni di familiari ed amici di prigionieri detenuti presso il carcere di Maghaberry

Il blog Newry Republican riporta la denuncia di familiari ed amici di prigionieri repubblicani, che recatisi presso la prigioni di Maghaberry per delle visite, sono stati vittime di ‘strip searches’ (persone spogliate e perquisite forzatamente) alla presenza di cani antidroga e 4 ufficiali della PSNI.
Il 30 gennaio scorso ad essere stati arbitrariamente sottoposti a strip search sono stati una donna ed un uomo nonostante quest’ultimo avesse deciso di rinunciare alla visita per ovviare alla perquisizione.
Stesso trattamento è stato riservato ad altre persone nelle settimane precedenti.
I media quali, Rté, BBC, UTV e altri organismi di stampa continuano a negare visibilità a notizie di questo genere così come di trattare lo status dei prigionieri repubblicani, l’internamento e la ‘Section 44 of the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2000’.
Solo l’emittente radiofonica FM104, una delle più seguite in Irlanda, ha deciso di affrontare l’argomento nonostante non la si possa ritenere filo repubblicana, così come ha già fatto nel passato.
Data la difficoltà di poter intervenire in diretta radiofonica all’interno dello show radiofonico condotto da Adrian Kennedy, è possibile inviare un’email che denunci gli arbitrari strip searches a Maghaberry, e pubblicizzi le future propeste in supporto dei prigionieri repubblicani.

To whom it may concern,
I implore you to cover an issue that is of utmost importance and needs to be addressed ASAP,
Currently in the occupied six counties of the North of Ireland, family and friends of republican prisoners are being subjected to rigorous strip searches when visiting any republican prisoner within Maghaberry prison.
Recently two women have been forced to comply with a strip search if they wished to see the republican prisoners they had come to visit.
On another occasion a man was forced to comply with a strip search despite the fact his visit with the republican had been refused.
During these searches, members of the British security service are present with sniffer dogs.
The use of strip searches by the British prison system in the North of Ireland is an absolute disgrace and needs to come to end, friends of relatives are entitled to visit their imprisoned loved ones without being subjected to such a degrading and humiliating practise, obviously being enforced to criminalise the republicans being held in the prisons, but aslo those who visit them.
This is all part of a campaign by the British government and the security services within the occupied six counties to enforce a policy which has become known by those affecting by it as ‘normalisation’, which has seen men and women being illegally interned despite having not being convicted of any crime, rigorous stop and searches of members of the public, the bugging of phones to record conversations etc,
All come from section 44, which allow the British security services to do all the above at will without fear of repirmand and with nobody to answer to, all in an effort to quell dissent to British rule and force the populous of the 6 counties to accept British rule and its institutions.
There are currently a number of man being held in Maghaberry prison despite having not being convicted of any crime, these internees families are liable to be forced to comply with the indignity of a strip search if they wish to visit thier interned loved ones.
This has to end, people across the 32 counties need to oppose this and let those in power this will not stand.

End strip searches of visitors to Maghaberry republican prisoners!

End Internment and Detention by Remand!
End Section 44!

Prisoner of War status for republican prisoners!

Maghaberry visitors subjected to strip searches (Newry Republican)
This is a very important issue that all republicans should come together to highlight, expose and oppose
I was speaking to the family of a Republican prisoner recently and they told me that on Saturday 30th January Republicans visiting political prisoners in Maghaberry were subjected to rigorous strip searches. A woman was strip searched before visiting a Republican prisoner and a man was strip searched even though he was refused to have his visit. Sniffer dogs were also present along with 4 members of the RUC/paramilitary police.
The week before this another woman who was visiting a Republican prisoner was also strip searched.
Yesterday, 3rd February, another visitor was strip searched and again the RUC/paramilitary police along with a sniffer dog were present.
Not only are the occupying forces criminalising our prisoners and the struggle they are also trying to humiliate and degrade the Republicans who are visiting them.
It almost looks as if the British establishment is trying to put people off visiting their loved ones in an attempt to try and demoralise the prisoners
The families of the prisoners have to suffer enough as it is without having to endure this whenever they visit their loved ones.
I call on every Republican, regardless of which group they belong to, to unite and speak out against these disgraceful, disgusting acts.
Having members of the public humiliated and degraded in this way needs to be highlighted, we won’t hear about these things on the BBC or UTV or any of the papers so it’s up to us to highlight it and let the people know what is happening.
I also call on anyone who own blogs or websites to also post this article and spread the word
