Maurice McCabe: We are entitled to the truth today- justice can follow

Maurice & Lorraine McCabe

[Shell to Sea]  We salute the bravery and tenacity of Sergeant Maurice McCabe and family in trying to bring much needed reform to the Gardaí and other State agencies. 

Read the full statement by Maurice and Lorraine McCabe released Monday February 13, 2017

We have endured eight years of great suffering, private nightmare, public defamation, and state vilification arising solely out from the determination of Maurice to ensure that the Garda Siochana adheres to decent and appropriate standards of policing in its dealings with the Irish people.

Our personal lives and our family life, and the lives of our five children, have been systematically attacked in a number of ways by agencies of the Irish state and by people working for the state in those agencies.

If Apple won’t pay tax what hope is there for civilisation?

Paul Sweeney - Irish Times

Multinationals owe responsibility to a wider group than their shareholders

Brussels has been accused of “bending the rules” in its pursuit of Apple for €13 billion in taxes it says should have been paid in Ireland. But in truth it is the multinationals and their corporate lawyers and accountants who have twisted the rules on taxation almost out of existence.

The tax system had been “captured” by the tax avoidance industry. Multinationals were paying less and less tax and states were reduced to tax wars against each other in failing efforts to attract them.

Discrepancy in Shell’s Corrib Gas Project financial filings?

John Donovan -

I have received information from Maura Harrington, spokesperson for the Shell to Sea campaign in Ireland concerning questions arising from the filed Shell financial accounts (2015) relating to the controversial construction of the Corrib natural gas pipeline in Ireland.

Maura would like the information to be brought to the attention of Shell shareholders so that if others examine the information she has already downloaded from the Irish Companies Registration Office (CRO) and share her concern, questions can be raised at the forthcoming Royal Dutch Shell Plc AGM.
