Written answers (Question to Justice)

I can inform that Deputy that the prisoner referred to has made three applications for transfer to the Training Unit which have all been refused by officials of my Department. The Deputy should also be advised that the prisoner's sentence management plan is under review by management of the Irish Prison Service and a decision will be made on the prisoner's future accommodation having considered a number of issues, including the nature of the prisoner's offence, his conduct while in custody, and the safe and secure custody of the prisoner.
