Human rights violations in Northern Ireland (2)
Pauline McCabe, Prisoner Ombudsman for Northern Ireland: ‘We investigate the complaints from prisoners and the deaths in prisons but we cannot be helpful’
date: 28 juni 2011
Subject: RE: Prisoner Ombudsman Enquiry Form
Thank you for your email in relation to Mr Brendan Lillis.
While we are aware of Mr Lillis’ situation, the Prisoner Ombudsman’s
remit extends to the investigation of complaints from prisoners and the investigation of deaths in prison custody.
We are not in a position, therefore, to comment on his continued detention. These matters are for the Minister for Justice and prison authorities.
I am sorry we cannot be more helpful.
