Points to raise in your correspondence:
• Róisín McAliskey has always maintained her innocence, and substantial evidence supports her claim, including an alibi and a principal prosecution witness’s inability to identify her a few months after the attack.
• Britain has already determined that there is insufficient evidence to try Róisín McAliskey for the Osnabruck attack.
• Almost 11 years have elapsed since the Osnabruck attack, and the passage of time makes it a great deal more difficult to obtain a fair trial and defend against the charges, as witnesses are more difficult to locate and may have died or become incapacitated or too infirm to testify, witnesses’ memories naturally will have dimmed or been artificially shaped by intervening publicity, and physical evidence may have deteriorated or be unavailable for testing by the defense.
Sample text :
Honorable Consul General,
I am writing to oppose the extradition of Róisín McAliskey to Germany and to ask that you inform your government of this communication.
Ms. McAliskey has always denied involvement in the Osnabruck attack and substantial evidence supports her innocence. She was in Ireland at the time of the attack. Within a few months of the attack, one of the chief prosecution witnesses, when interviewed on German television, was unable to identify Ms. McAliskey as a participant. Consistent with this state of evidence, the British government previously determined there was insufficient evidence to prosecute Ms. McAliskey in Britain. It rejected a request by Germany to take over the prosecution.
In addition, the passage of nearly 11 years since the attack has made it unlikely Ms. McAliskey can obtain a fair trial and defend herself against the charges. Witnesses will have become difficult to locate, and some may have died or become incapacitated. Even available witnesses’ memories will have dimmed substantially or been artificially shaped by intervening publicity about the case. Physical evidence may have deteriorated or be unavailable for testing by the defense.
I ask that you relay my letter to your government.
Thank you from
The Irish Freedom Committee and CIRW
