Attorney General’s Office did not have the information requested.

Dear Attorney General’s Office,

Please forward any information possible to explain the ongoing
torture, as defined by UN, of Marian Price McGlinchey of Belfast.
Thank you.

Also, have you received new training materials related to
understanding and implementing new United Nations guidelines
regarding what constitutes 'solitary confinement' and what is
considered torturous 'solitary confinement' by UN standards. In
2010, the UN declared all forms of electroshock therapy to also be
torture. These are tremendous and great celebrations of
humanitarianism. You should have recieved papaer work from the UN
to share with law enforcement and medical personnel related to both
solitary confinement and electroshock therapy. Thank you for any
guidance you can provide. You may be aware the HMP Hydebank, a
womens and youth detention center with hospital facilities has
turned away UN doctors, and are now turning away Red Cross who
would like to check on the safety and condition of prisoners.
Please assist. Thank you for your service.

Yours faithfully,

leanne flynn
