The prisoners in Castlerea have said they don't want their release to be included in any future negotiations. They also apologised to the Family of Gerry McCabe and Ben O'Sullivan. They said they didn't wish to be used "as pawns or hostages to undermine this process"
Their release however shouldn't even be an issue as they qualify for early release.
The Dublin government should honor their commitments in the GFA and release these men.
