Republican POWs locked down
Republican prisoners were under complete lock-down for most of the day as a result of a bomb-scare on a criminal wing.
These lock-downs occur often as a result of emergencies on criminal wings. They are an unnecessary result of the unworkable controlled movement regime. They occur on a daily basis and are a direct result of POA enforced restrictions.
A simple resolution to this was envisaged in the Steele Report of 2003; all of Roe House for Republican prisoners, which would also resolve the space issue.
