Repatriate Michael Campbell Campaign


Thursday June 27th 2013.

The long anticipated hearing arrived with no fanfare. These terrible and monumental denials of an Irish Citizens human rights in a European state, suppressed by the Irish media once more, to spare the blushes of those complicit in this injustice.

Again the Prosecutor demanded a stay on proceedings hoping for another 6 months of torturous arduous waiting imposed on Michael in the knowledge Michael cannot leave Lithuania until all legal affairs have been concluded in the Republic of Lithuania. They asked for more time as the Prosecutor responsible for Michael’s case was vacationing.

Thankfully the Appeals judge, (who has been petitioned by all of you campaigners since his being appointed to the case) refused the Prosecution request frustrated at the attempts to further delay this process. The judge stated the Prosecution had received sufficient time from his court and that he would not tolerate another lengthy delay.

He directed he would hear final submissions on 30th August 2013. Court will then take a 2-3 week long recess. In this time the Appeals judge will deliberate court will resume to deliver the result of those deliberations. If the British Government cease their nefarious and vindictive influence on the Prosecutors office this may be the end of Appeal proceedings against Michael.

Following Thursdays hearing there are currently two possible outcomes:

(1.) The Appeal is fully heard and, following deliberations of up to 3 weeks, the outcome delivered. And this is accepted by the Prosecutors office.

This will be the conclusion of “domestic legal proceedings” in the Republic of Lithuania and Michael is free to transfer under Rights afforded to citizens of states subscribed to the European Union.

(2.) The Lithuanian Prosecutor refuses to accept the decision of the appeal judge and appeals his decision to the Lithuanian Supreme court, which is a simple process in Lithuania.
In the event of this instance it would determine Michael remaining in Lithuanian custody until that appeal is heard. The usual wait is between 2 – 3 years. In that time as proceedings are deemed “on-going” Michael will be denied his right to transfer.
