Martin Corey has now been politically interned, more than three and a half years, in British Occupied Ireland Ireland, on top of previous time in Long Kesh Concentration Camp, he has now been incarcerated for more than 23 years, as a political prisoner of conscience, still not knowing why he is there, other than the unceasing injustices of a British neo-colonial scum state.
A judge in Belfast ordered his immediate , unconditional release on July 9 last year, because he was being illegally held, simply on the basis of secret evidence, neither he or is lawyers were allowed to see. His family on receiving the news, rushed to the prison to bring him home but while Martin was sitting in the reception area awaiting freedom and his family waiting outside the gate, the unelected British Viceroyal from England, overruled the judge, courts and judiciar by Viceroyal order, kidnapped him once again.
British paramilitary police originally kidnapped him, appearing at Martin Corey's door, taking him away him away like thousands of other Irishmen and women, in the present phase of the troubles, to internment without trial, in the early hours of April 16, 2010. His younger brother Joe described what happened as follows:
"They came to the door at around 6 a.m. There was about 12 of them standing there when I answered the door. They asked for Martin and told me the Secretary of State had revoked his [parole]. They gave no reason for this. There was no struggle. He just got up and walked out with them. They brought him to Maghaberry, where he has been ever since."
Martin Corey was not charged with any crime or told what he was supposed to have done. He was informed that the English Viceroyal had revoked his license because he was a "security risk."
Martin Corey told The Lurgan Mail in 2011 :
"I have been in prison for nearly a year and a half, and I still haven't been given a reason. They have put forward a number of allegations against me, and I'm not able to defend myself against any of them.
They say I have been seen speaking to known republicans, and that I visited a number of houses. What does that matter? It doesn't mean I've done anything wrong. They have absolutely nothing on me, and that's why they haven't charged me."
Martin Corey's partner, Lynda Magee, said, "He does not know what he has done and has been told nothing about why he is being held. He has already served his time, and he was willing to do it. But now he is being held for no reason."
Provisional Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams urged the British Viceroyal to free Martin Corey, stating that "Martin Corey was released by the courts...he should be released. Many international human rights activists, were especially alarmed when the British Viceroyal, overruled the judge's decision and ordered Martin Corey back to be re=interned without trial a second time. The English Viceroyal has effectively placed itself above the law, and is politically interning people at will, indefinitely.
One of Occupied Ireland's original civil rights leader Bernadette Devlin McAliskey described it as follows:
"The direct action of the British Government, through their Northern Ireland Office, in abusing executive authority to overrule the independent decisions of the judicial system in both the Corey and Price cases is the clearest indication to date of how little has really changed in Northern Ireland in respect of accountable democracy.
The Good Friday Agreement promised an end to this abuse of human rights and democracy. It is long past time it delivered on this promise. It is also time the international power players, who created this deformity of democracy held it to account."
Currently Viceroyal Villiers is sleepwalking the Irish Peace Process back to war, with the re-introduction of internment, always considered an act of war on the Irish people, when introduced in every generation, since the foundation of the neo-colonial police state, which will again cause countless more victims, while she still cannot wash away the blood stained Villiers family hands, that disappeared more than six and a quarter million people, in the Irish Holocaust directed by her ancestor Viceroyal George Villiers, from her infamous family dynasty, of aristocratic rakes, associated with the devil worshippers of the Hell Fire Club. Irish people don't have to stare at their hands, to know from experience, where this one is going once again!
