Róisín McAliskey should be released
Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams has described todays decision by the German authorities to oppose bail for Róisín McAliskey as ``cruel and vindictive''. The Sinn Fein President has called for ``the immediate release of Ms. McAliskey''
Mr. Adams said:
``There is increasing concern about the health of Róisín McAliskey and her unborn child.
``The conditions under which she is being held, in particular the British refusal to provide proper medical care and the inhuman practice of strip searching her twice a day, is evidence of the British government's punitive approach to all Irish political prisoners.
``Ms. McAliskey should be released immediately.''
