Judge grants veteran republican Marian Price legal request
Conviction against Price has been rescinded
A district judge has granted an application that aims to set aside a conviction handed down to veteran republican Marian Price earlier this week.
On Monday Price was convicted on two charges relating to a protest in Belfast over three years ago, reports the BBC.
According to the Belfast Telegraph the 59-year-old was accused of resisting and obstructing police after a republican protest in the New Lodge area of Belfast city on July 10, 2010.
Price was not present for the hearing at Belfast Magistrates' Court. Her legal counsel said she had been excused due to ill health.
On Tuesday, a doctor confirmed the extent of her condition to a court. The case was adjourned for four weeks and the judge said she would try to facilitate Price’s medical condition.
Price served a jail sentence along with her late sister Dolours Price for the 1973 IRA bomb attack on the Old Bailey in London.
Former Northern Ireland Secretary, Owen Paterson, revoked her licence in 2010 and she spent two years in custody before she was released in May of this year.
