MICHAELA McCOLLUM: RELEASE FROM PRISON IN PERU
We act on behalf of Michaela McCollum. We have been instructed by her and her family in relation to her detention as a prisoner in Peru.
Michaela McCollum was released from prison at 5 00pm last night following a successful application for parole.
She has NOT been released under any repatriation scheme or other protocol between Peru and the UK.
There will be a pending judicial hearing to determine the conditions of her parole.
Kevin Winters solicitor said:
“At this stage it remains unclear when Michaela may be eligible to return home. That will be a matter for the court and a pending judicial hearing to determine the conditions of her parole. We are working with her lawyers in Peru and hope to be in a position to clarify further, as soon as possible.”
