The Cornish Branch of the Celtic League are writing to the Irish Government and other polititians in the Celtic countries asking them to intervene on behalf of a Breton prisoner who is being held in detention by the French authorities, despite rapidly deteriorating health. Mr Solé was sentenced in March 2004 to 6 years in jail for his involvement with the Breton Revolutionary Army (ARB), an accusation he has always denied. Despite having served nearly four and a half years in jail without trial with a serious health condition, Mr Solé health has continued to deteriorate due to poor medical attention and treatment by the French authorities. While in detention Mr Solé has had a major heart operation, which he was not properly treated for and has also attempted suicide. Under French law, Mr Solé could be released under the Kouchner Law that makes provision for the release of seriously ill prisoners. However, last Friday Mr Solé was informed that he would be released on parole under this law, only to find out on Satuday that the State Prosecution had appealed this decision. This means that Mr Solé is still in jail with no clear idea as to when or if he will be released. Amnesty International have also campaigned for the release of Mr Solé and the European Court of Humans Right in Strasbourg have condemned France treatment of its prisoners. CARB, a Breton organisation campaigning for the rights of the prisoners, believe that should Mr Sole lose his life due to the emotional shock that his continued detention has, the French Government will be entirely to blame. On 1st August, CARB are organising a demonstration in Lorient, which will begin outside the Town Hall at 3pm. Representatives from the Cornish Branch will try to attend the demo and would like to hear from all those who also hope to attend.
