Marian Price has been moved to Hydebank Wood a womens prison while her lawyers are set to begin judicial review proceedings against her internment.

From the Irish Times:
"A PROMINENT republican has been moved from Maghaberry Prison to a women’s facility at Hydebank Wood, near Belfast, the Northern Ireland Prison Service confirmed yesterday."

Also in todays Irish Times Eamonn McCann writes about the judicial review proceedings that her lawyers will begin next week:
"The veteran republican was detained in May 2011 when Paterson signed an order declaring that she had breached the terms of the licence on which she’d been released in 1980 from two life sentences and a 20-year term imposed for IRA bombings in London, including the bombing of the Old Bailey, in March 1973. Around 180 people were injured in the blasts, mainly by flying glass. One man died from a heart attack. Price’s elder sister, Dolours, and Gerry Kelly, now a minister in the Stormont Executive, were among the 10-strong IRA bomb team. Lawyers for Price, who is 57, say that she was pardoned rather than released on licence and that Paterson exceeded his authority in sending her back to prison. Paterson’s barristers contest this, but have told a panel of parole commissioners that “extensive searches” have failed to locate a copy of the document on which she was released."
