Veteran republican Marian Price is convicted over protest

BY IVAN LITTLE

Veteran republican Marian McGlinchey Price has been convicted of two charges arising out of a protest in Belfast more than three years ago.

The 59-year-old was accused of resisting and obstructing police after a white line protest in the New Lodge area of the city on July 10, 2010.

Price was not present at Belfast Magistrates Court yesterday for the brief hearing.

Her lawyer said she had been excused because of long-standing medical problems.

The case was adjourned until September 2.

At an earlier hearing it was said that she had no fixed address.

Price served a jail sentence along with her late sister Dolours Price for the 1973 IRA bomb attack on the Old Bailey in London in which one man died and 200 people were injured.

Her licence was revoked in 2011 and she spent two years in custody before she was finally released earlier this year.
