Jailed MSP makes prison fight vow

PUBLISHED January 24, 2005

Socialist MSP Carolyn Leckie has been released from prison after spending a night behind bars after refusing to pay a fine.

Ms Leckie was arrested during a demonstration at Faslane Naval Base in August 2004 and unsuccessfully appealed a breach of the peace conviction.
She said she now wanted to campaign for better conditions for prisoners.
