Screen Shot 2013-08-13 at 17.06.54ALLEGATIONS of drink being delivered to gardaí on behalf of the Shell multinational for policing its controversial Corrib gas project at Rossport in County Mayo require statements by the Ministers for Justice and Natural Resources as well as “an independent probe to vindicate the reputations of everyone involved in granting Shell its licences from start to finish”, Sinn Féin TD Pádraig Mac Lochlainn has said.

The Sinn Féin TD said the delivery of what has been described in the media as ‘corporate sweeteners’ on behalf of Shell to gardaí policing protests against Shell’s operations – including a delivery of €35,000 of alcohol to Belmullet Garda Station in 2007 – raises serious questions about possible bribery to influence policy or practice by Shell or its agents. read more

Gardai deny gas firm gave them alcohol worth €35k

GARDAI have rejected claims that officers policing the Corrib Gas protests were given alcohol worth €35,000 by the company building the pipeline.

An oil services company has claimed it delivered the alcohol in an unmarked van to Belmullet garda station in Mayo at Christmas 2007 following instructions by Shell E&P Ltd.

And OSSL, based in Bangor Erris, also claims it was charged with providing “accommodation services” to local residents, including home improvements, tennis courts, donating kitchen appliances and paying school fees.

The company, which worked with Shell since 2002, had its contract terminated in 2010, and claims it is owed money by Shell E&P Ltd. read more

MEP claims gardaí assaulted him at Corrib gas protest

The Irish Times – Friday, August 26, 2011

LORNA SIGGINS, Western Correspondent

SOCIALIST Party MEP Paul Murphy says he intends to lodge a complaint with the Garda Síochána over his treatment at a Corrib gas protest in north Mayo yesterday.

Mr Murphy says he was “assaulted by gardaí” as he participated in a sit-down protest on a public road close to the Corrib gas terminal at Ballinaboy.

“I was punched in the head, I had my pressure point targeted – as in my ear was deliberately twisted to a point of excruciating pain and my stomach was repeatedly poked and prodded at very sensitive points,” Mr Murphy said. read more

‘Horrifying’ talk of raping me by gardai has caused ‘deep distress’ for everyone

FEAR: ‘Glimpse of intimidation community has faced for years’

Damien Eagers: CONTROVERSY: Jerrie Ann Sullivan speaks to media. She was arrested after climbing onto a tractor in a protest against Shell

The five gardai at the centre of the “rape-tape” allegations will face some sort of censure but are unlikely to be sacked.

They are likely to face internal disciplinary procedures with possible sanctions like suspension or fines if they are found guilty of misconduct. One of the two women at the centre of the garda ‘rape tape’ has spoken of her “distress” at what had happened.

Jerrie Ann Sullivan, a postgraduate student from Dublin, said the remarks by gardai joking about raping her and another woman had been deeply traumatic. read more
