“Free the Colombia 3”. Niall Connolly (SF), Jim Monaghan (IRA), and Martin McCauley (IRA) were arrested in August, 2001 travelling on false passports in Colombia. They were also charged with training FARC rebels to make bombs. Initially, they were found innocent of this charge in the December 2002 trial, but then found guilty of it on appeal by the prosecution (in December 2004), at which time they fled back to Ireland (WP). The board is on top of Rem The Prisoners.
