Ferris calls on Shell to lift injunction

30 September, 2005

The Sinn Féin Spokesperson on Natural Resources, Martin Ferris TD, has called on Shell to lift their injunction against the five Rossport men currently being held in Cloverhill Prison. Deputy Ferris was speaking ahead of this afternoon's High Court appearance by the five.

Deputy Ferris said: "As Minister Dempsey reacts to massive public pressure by again suggesting mediation, I am reiterating my call to Shell to allow real negotiations to take place by lifting their injunction against the men. In that event all aspects of the Corrib project can be examined in the absence of threats and bullying". ENDS
