Statement from CIRA Prisoners, Roe 3, Maghaberry Gaol, Co Antrim.

21Press Release, August 31st, 2014

Following a process of ongoing discussion and analysis between the representatives of all Republican political prisoners in Roe House Republican wing, it has been agreed that the use of all facilities and physical space will be on a shared basis from Monday 1st September 2014.

The Maghaberry Gaol administration will be made aware of this new dispensation immediately.

Decisions relating to the utilisation of the limited physical space available in Roe will be regulated through the agreement of the representatives of the republican prisoner groups and no one else.

maghaberry-1024x554In the past the gaol administration have exploited relationships between republican prisoners to foster and exacerbate tensions, so as to create division and disharmony. This has been to subvert the August 2010 agreement generally, but in particular it is a last ditch effort to legitimise its discredited and condemned controlled movement policy.

All Republican prisoners are united in our determination to resist all British state criminalisation efforts.

Equally we are committed to taking whatever action we deem necessary to achieve the implementation of the August 2010 agreement which alone provides the route towards the establishment of a conflict free environment.
