The Irish Republican Socialist Party welcome the resolution of the current protest by the republican political prisoners in Roe House, Maghaberry Gaol.

IRSP Press officer Paul Little said that the prisoners demands had been conceded and that there would be a phasing out of controlled movement and that random strip searching has been abolished.

At this time we would pay tribute to the republican prisoners who have been steadfast in their determination to see that they achieve their basic human rights, we also pay tribute to the families friends and ex prisoners support group who have campaigned ceaselessly since the protest began at Easter.

Finally, the IRSP commend the facilitators/mediators for their sterling efforts in bringing about this resolution.
