29 June, 2017 - by Gerry Adams

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams TD has welcomed the not guilty verdict in the trial of the Jobstown protesters.

Speaking from Belfast, Teachta Adams said;

“The verdict is victory for the right to protest. The charge of false imprisonment was clearly trumped up. There were charges with an obvious political purpose - to demonise water charges protesters.

“The right to protest is a democratic and hard won right. It cannot be brushed aside or diluted to suit a political agenda.

“This is good news for everybody who holds that right dear. I want to send my good wishes to the protesters and their families.”
