Royal Dutch Shell Plc .com: Chambers’ chief hits out at Shell protesters

THE irrational stance of a small group of protesters is hampering the Shell gas developments for the country, according to the chief executive of Chambers Ireland, John Dunne.

Mr Dunne was speaking at the weekend in Mullingar, at Chambers Ireland annual regional policy conference.

One of the contributors to the conference was External Affairs manager for Shell Ireland, John Egan.

He outlined the project and its potential impact in re-defining regional economies and said that the company was sorry about the jailing of five Rossport men last year, as was stated by the company earlier this year.

In response, John Dunne, speaking on behalf of Chambers Ireland questioned why the Shell company should apologise for applying the law of the State.

“A small minority of protesters are hampering the development of the Shell project and they are not prepared to accept compromise and as a stance that is irrational.

“The planning process has been gone through and protesters must come under the law of the land, in the same way that developers do,” Mr Dunne insisted.
