Suspended sentences for protests
26 Nov 2014 21:09
The High Court has ordered that three water charge protesters be committed to prison for 28 days each for breaching an order of the High Court.
-
However, Mr Justice Paul Gilligan suspended the prison terms for six months on condition that they abide by the order.
-
The company installing water meters, GMC Sierra, claimed four men breached a court order in north Dublin, preventing them from coming within 20 metres of its work stations and from interfering with the entrance and exit of the company's vehicles.
-
The company's application against one man was struck out after the court found he had not been properly served with the necessary legal documentation to attach and commit him.
-
Mr Justice Gilligan said the three remaining defendants - Damien O'Neill of Greenwood Park in Coolock; Paul Moore of Mount Olive Grove in Kilbarrack; and Terence Sheridan of Kilbarron Park in Kilmore West, all in Dublin 5 - had all denied acting unlawfully or harassing or intimidating GMC Sierra's workers.
-
But he said none of the three defendants had denied that they had breached the order preventing them from coming within 20 metres of the works.
-
He said he was satisfied beyond reasonable doubt that they had breached the order he made earlier this month.
