Concerns: HMP MAGHABERRY Prison
After the examination of the high-level Irish Government delegation by the UN Committee against Torture on 23 and 24 May 2011, the situation in Irish prisons has deteriorated…
As you know the health situation of the 59 old prisoner Brendan Lillis who is detained in MAGHABERRY Prison, is very critical and he needs urgent hospitalisation.
Another prisoner was found dead in his cell.
The prisoner Harry Fitzsimons has recieved a severe beating this morning. They went into his cell this morning, holding their hands over his mouth and nose to stop his breathing, punching his face they broke his glasses he has cuts on his face, they tried to break his nose, then they brutally ripped every stitch of clothing off his body.
One said he is unrecognisable, he has a suspected broken wrist an ribs due to the severe punching to his body,
I hear also that the screws are messing around with the mail and POWs may not be getting their mail.
May I request your urgent intervention in this matter?
I am waiting your answer.
