New Aiden Hulme Repatriation Picket

category dublin | rights, freedoms and repression | event notice author Saturday May 27, 2006 19:00author by Paul Doyle - New Republican Forum Report this post to the editors

Irish prisioner Aiden Hulme has been subject to shocking medical neglect since his inprisonment in England and will loose his leg if immidiate action is not taken. Join the protest!



Aiden Hulme Repatriation Picket

For immediate release

Issued by the New Republican Forum, May 25th 2006

A picket calling for the immediate repatriation of Irish prisoner Aiden Hulme will be held outside the General Post Office in Dublin on 17th of June 2006 from 2-3pm.

Aiden, 27, was imprisoned for alleged involvement in the 2000/2001 Real IRA bombing campaign in London. Prior to his arrest and imprisonment he was involved in a motorcycle accident that left him with a severely injured leg. After the accident Aiden was receiving treatment in Belfast and his condition was improving. However, upon imprisonment in Britains notorious Belmarsh Special Secure Unit (SSU), Aidens medical condition began to deteriorate at an alarming rate. After long delays the Belmarsh authorities reluctantly acquired the services of a specialist to examine Aidens injured leg but after a brief examination the Belmarsh-appointed specialist informed him that the injured leg should be amputated. Aidens family and friends, disturbed by and suspicious of this opinion, immediately sought a second opinion.

After intensive and prolonged political lobbying by the Irish Political Status Committee and other groups an independent specialist was permitted to examine Aiden. After the examination the independent specialist deemed the limb saveable contrary to the opinion of the prison-appointed specialist. However, the independent specialist insisted it was essential that Aiden receive appropriate medical treatment, warning he feared the worst if it was not forthcoming. Aiden underwent surgery, but due to continuing medical neglect he is now once again facing amputation. Several operations aimed at saving Aidens leg have also been cancelled by the prison authorities.

SDLP leader Mark Durkan has contacted the British Home Office and the Department of Justice requesting that Aidens repatriation application be processed without delay. Sinn Fin General Secretary Mitchel McLaughlin has also called on the Irish Government to intervene immediately. He said: Aiden Hulmes application for repatriation to an Irish prison has been with Michael McDowell in the Irish Department of Justice since last September (2005). I call on Mr McDowell to process this application immediately so that Aiden Hulme can come back where he will be close to his family and receive the much needed medical attention that he is entitled to.

Aiden, who is on 23-hour lock down, has instructed his legal team to initiate proceedings against HMP Full Sutton on account of the treatment meted out to him.

Various other political and humantarian groups have spoken out about this case and an online petition has been lauched at: http://www.petitiononline.com/87bb92a/petition.html
