Today Sean Farrell and Ciaran Maguire’s extradition case was put back until the 13th of May for mention.
The main extradition case was to be heard today; however, Sean and Ciaran’s legal teams raised several extremely important points. These points included that it is not possible to formulate a defence without knowing what can be used for a defence in the extradition hearing.
Sean and Ciaran had an unsuccessful judicial review hearing previously and have appealed that decision, the judge agreed that it is fundamental to have exhausted this appeal process for the men to have a fair hearing. The state wished to proceed with the main hearing today regardless; however, this was not permitted.
The Saoradh POW department extends best wishes to both men in their struggle against Free-State and British oppression!
