Innocent man released on Friday 15th April 2011
A Donegal man Daniel Doherty of Moville was incarcerated at Castlerea Prison for over 60 days. The reason for this incarceration was that he would not withdraw allegations he has made against the State in a case that is listed in the Supreme Court to be heard.
Daniel Doherty was jailed in early February 2011 at Castlerea Prison for failing to withdraw allegations he has made in his case against the State. There was no court case and the only reason he was jailed was that he was asked to withdraw allegations he has set out in his Statement of Claim filed in the High Court. The Statement of Claim concerns corruption in the judiciary and legal system and provides names of those involved including John L Murray the Chief Justice. He was badly treated in jail and went on hunger strike for 20 days. He would not withdraw his serious allegations against the defendants and said that he is entitled to have his case heard in the Supreme Court.
