Repatriate Noel Maguire! sign now

Dear Sir:

I write to you asking that you reconsider your decision to refuse Noel
Maguire's repatriation request from Full Sutton Prison in England to
Portlaoise to be closer to his loved ones.

The premise from the Dept of Justice that Noel cannot apply again for
Repatriation until January 2008 is not correct. This is contrary to the
legislation agreed in all EU member states - that a prisoner can at any time
apply for repatriation to country of origin.

The claim that he has no close relatives living in the 26 counties is untrue
as Noel's family live a few hours away from Portlaoise. Noel Maguire is
from Co Fermanagh and holds a valid 26 County passport, thus more than
qualifies for repatriation on the grounds of the European Directive as an
Irish Citizen.

We strongly believe that the Irish Ministry of Justice may well be in breach
of the Irish Constitution - which states it 'treats all the children of the
nation equally.' Clearly in Noel's case this is not at all true.

Noel's six co-defendants, all Irish like he is, have already been
repatriated to Portlaoise Prison

On humanitarian grounds we ask that the decision to refuse repatriation be
reconsidered, as a knife attack on Noel last year by 2 inmates who have
since been charged with attempted murder is an indication of the seriousness
of the situation. Should he not be repatriated his physical and mental well
being are at serious risk.

Noel Maguire's mental and physical well being is at risk and he is the true
example of why the European Directive was designed to allow prisoners to
complete their sentence in the country of their Citizenship
