Since the charges against Marian were thrown out of court, because of a lack of evidence by a Judge as per the details of the report belwo, back in May this year, the same charges have been re-instated against Marian again! Marian still has another lung infection, so the doctors have stopped some of the treatment for her crippling arthritis. She has been receiving highly toxic medication and her immune system is so
suppressed, that infections are just following each other. She has been having steroid injections but is only allowed a limited number of these. Marian is in a lot of pain, nurses are applying gel to her knees and legs to give her some relief.
Marian has also been given additional medication for anaemia. The doctors are concerned, that her overall medical condition is deteriorating. Marian was also recently diagnosed with a heart condition, which she certainly did not have before her arrest in May 2011. The pointers clearly move in one direction and show that this serious deterioration in the health of an already vulnerable woman, is a direct consequence of serious neglect and isolation over such a lengthy period in Maghaberry and Hydebank.
In addition to the physical medical aspects of Marian's case, doctors are also trying to treat psychological problems, as a result of sensory deprivation torture of more than one year, coupled with 6 months of previous force feeding.The 24 hour guard on Marian, a chronically ill woman, who was been bailed twice by the courts, is clearly a violation of her basic human rights. It is highly unlikely that Marian will ever fully recover from this vicious, bigoted, savage, sectarian, vindictive ordeal.
