"I have been in prison for over 3 years and I still haven’t been given a reason. They have put forward a number of allegations against me, and I’m not able to defend myself against any of them. They say I have been seen speaking to known republicans, and that I visited a number of houses. What does that matter? It doesn’t mean I’ve done anything wrong. They have absolutely nothing on me, and that’s why they haven’t charged me." Martin Corey
Release Martin Corey

On the 11th January 2006 , the then Secretary for state for Norn Iron , "Peter Hain" , withdrew Paragraph 20 of the Weston Park Agreement.
Hello ! Calling Gerry Adams ? Are you out to lunch or on the wrong medicine again, a chara?
Why has the Weston park accord (20) not been implemented?.
This is the initial paragraph 20 of the Weston Park Accord.
20. Both Governments also recognize that there is an issue to be
addressed, with the completion of the early release scheme, about
supporters of organisations now on cease-fire against whom there are
outstanding prosecutions, and in some cases extradition proceedings, for
offences committed before 10 April 1998. Such people would, if convicted,
stand to benefit from the early release scheme. The Governments accept
that it would be a natural development of the scheme for such prosecutions
not to be pursued and will as soon as possible, and in any event before the
end of the year, take such steps as are necessary in their jurisdictions to
resolve this difficulty so that those concerned are no longer pursued.
This is why Martin Corey is interned!
GFA Weston Park Accord (20)
Le gach deá ghuí,
Question No. 127
Parliamentary Question - Dept Details
To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade the reason he is not pressing that an agreement made between the Irish Government and the British Government be implemented in full, and that as agreed at Weston Park that no further prosecutions and consequently prison sentences will be imposed on those who committed offences before 10 April 1998; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
Éamon Ó Cuív.
For WRITTEN answer on Tuesday, 28th February, 2012.
Ref No: 10899/12
Proposed draft legislation by the British Government to deal with this specific issue as referred to in paragraph 20 of the Weston Park accord was formally withdrawn by the then Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, Peter Hain MP, on 11 January 2006. The draft legislation, the Northern Ireland (Offences) Bill, had been opposed by the majority of the Northern Ireland Assembly parties and the Secretary of State was compelled to withdraw the legislation when the only supporting party, Sinn Féin, could not accept certain aspects of the proposed legislation. As the Government was committed to introduce proposals only in tandem with the British government and in accordance with the consensus of the democratically elected Assembly parties, the withdrawal of the Bill meant that the proposals for dealing with the matter in this jurisdiction were also withdrawn.
This is why the British are now interning people, particularly old, retired,freedom fighters like 63 year old Martin Corey !
I smell something very rotten in the scum orgy state! Gerry Adams as principal of the largest nationalist party, like his predecessors in the SDLP, needs to withdraw his party from Stormont until human rights are restored. You don't have to be particularly bright to simply see, we cannot have peace without basic justice that is seen to be done not hiding in secret courts. A secret trial is no trial any child in the wee six will tell you that, even the ones building the Orange orgy bonfires.
Now Mr Adams with all due respect, it is your RESPOSNIBILITY (POLITICAL ACCOUNTABILITY and all that) to get some clarity on the above matter rapidly, before this spirals out of control on the streets again, if you are genuinely interested in peace. WE demand an answer and a proper eplanation immediately! Stop the politicking, this is far too serious! Every sane person in Ireland, including Martin Corey wants peace with justice! I am asking everyone who support this to reshare and retweet until these politicians get it ! Release Martin Corey
Release Martin Corey
