Shell to Sea has appealed to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) to raise the issue of policing the Corrib gas dispute with the Government. The Mayo-based environmental group says it has made the submission to the UNHCR’s office, following Minister for Justice Alan Shatter’s confirmation in the Dáil that he did “not see a necessity” for an independent inquiry into policing in North Mayo. UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights Defenders Margaret Sekaggya had recommended that the Government should “investigate all allegations and reports of intimidation, harassment and surveillance in the context of the Corrib gas dispute in a prompt and impartial manner”.
