Irish Villagers Say Shell Pipeline Is Health Hazard, Risk Jail

Bloomberg: Irish Villagers Say Shell Pipeline Is Health Hazard, Risk Jail

Oct. 25 (Bloomberg) — Willie Corduff, a farmer from Rossport in western Ireland, spent 94 days in prison for obstructing Royal Dutch/Shell Plc’s plans to build a pipeline near his village. A court will rule today on whether he needs to serve more time.

“I don’t want to go back to jail, but I will if I have to,” said Corduff, 51, as he drove from Bellanaboy to Rossport, a 30-house village perched on the edge of Broadhaven Bay in Mayo. Corduff, wearing blue jeans and green wellington boots, says he’ll do anything “within the law” to prevent the project. read more

Three weeks after their release from jail, the men told a press conference in Castlebar, Co Mayo, yesterday that neither Noel Dempsey nor his officials had made any contact with them in relation to proposed mediation.

In a separate development, Mr Dempsey has been informed that there is no legal impediment if he decides to defer his own order to Shell to dismantle an illegally welded section of onshore pipeline. read more
