Dad de­serves MSP meet­ing

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

MARIE Low’s dad Al­bert is never go­ing to get his daugh­ter back (see page 9).

Sadly, she was taken away from him and other loved ones when she was fa­tally stabbed by Siob­han Rus­sell in a street in Dou­glas in 2016.

But the least Mr Low de­serves is the chance to dis­cuss his con­cerns over Rus­sell’s five-and-a-half-year sen­tence with the pol­icy-mak­ers who have some in­flu­ence over how long a per­son gets in jail for a cer­tain type of crime.

Rus­sell’s sen­tence may have been shorter due to the jury find­ing her guilty of a charge of cul­pa­ble homi­cide, rather than mur­der, but no mat­ter what the le­gal term, the fact re­mains that a much-loved mum died as a re­sult of an­other per­son’s ac­tions.

It’s im­por­tant that the jus­tice sec­re­tary lis­tens to Mr Low’s com­ments and se­ri­ously con­sid­ers how to act upon them.
