Minister for Justice Alan Shatter has rejected fresh calls for an independent inquiry into the Garda policing operation of the €3.4bn Shell Corrib gas project in north Co Mayo. Last week, South African archbishop Desmond Tutu and former UN assistant secretary general Denis Halliday called for an “urgent and comprehensive” independent inquiry into the policing of the Corrib gas project. Mr Shatter said: “I do not see a necessity for an independent inquiry into the policing operation in north Co Mayo.” He said the total cost of policing protests against the Shell Corrib plan “has now reached in excess of €16m”.
