Free Seamus Doherty Campaign

The Free Seamus Doherty Campaign will hold a march and rally on
Saturday the 23rd of October, leaving Free Derry Corner at 2.30 pm,
to the Guildhall Square were a number of prominent speakers will be
in attendance.

This protest is designed to draw attention to Seamus's continued
incarceration and the disclosures that he is a victim of state
manufactured evidence, tampered evidence, and altered statements.

It was revealed last week that a senior Detective in charge of the
case had tried to manipulate a forensic scientist into altering
statements to cover the involvement of an informant. Detective
Williamson has now been recommended for prosecution and his informant
remains at large.

Seamus's legal team sought disclosure of a number of documents
relevant to his case but the prosecution applied for a public
immunity certificate, such was their determination to suppress the
facts of the case. In all, ten items of disclosure were requested,
with eight being granted.

We call on all those interested in the humane rights of Seamus to
come out and support his family in a mass show of solidarity. We
cannot permit this young man to be continually held as a political
hostage, while state's case against him unravels.

The Free Seamus Doherty Campaign calls for his immediate and
unconditional release. This case bares similarities to the Birmingham
Six and the Guilford Four. We must prevent this attempt by the
British establishment to hold someone accountable for their campaign
of selective interment against the Republican and Nationalist
communities.

Spokesperson for the Free Seamus Doherty Campaign
