I met with the Director General of the Northern Ireland Prison Service, Sue McAllister, on 21 January 2015, when she updated me on the recent tensions on the republican separated wing at HMP Maghaberry. The Director General also advised me of the threats being made to prison staff by prisoners on the wing, which I unreservedly condemn. Such threats are utterly unacceptable and I stand with the Northern Ireland Prison Service in calling for those responsible to stop.
