Social justice campaigner Fr Peter McVerry, Lord Mayor of Dublin Christy Burke, four TDs, one Senator and seven academics are signatories to a petition for an independent inquiry into policing of the north Mayo Shell/Corrib gas dispute.

Transparency International chief executive John Devitt, Garda whistleblower John Wilson, former UN assistant secretary general Denis Halliday and film-maker Lelia Doolan have also signed the petition, supported by five non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and 31 public figures.

The petition to Government notes that the UN Human Rights Commission, South African archbishop Desmond Tutu and NGOs including Amnesty International, Frontline, Table and Global Community Monitor have already issued similar calls.

Other signatories to the petition include Dr Vicky Conway, Kent Law School senior lecturer and Irish Times columnist Vincent Browne.

The petition says that an investigation should look at the relationship between the Garda and Shell and between the Garda and private security company Integrated Risk Management Services, employed for the Corrib project.
