Off to slam: Arrest warrant issued for Independent TDs Clare Daly and Mick Wallace

It is understood that an arrest warrant has been issued for Clare Daly and Mick Wallace, after they refused to pay the €2,000 fine imposed on them for a security breach offence at Shannon Airport in July 2014.

The warrants have been sent to the local Garda stations in Clontarf and Coolock, and they are likely to be executed in the near future.

The original deadline to pay the fines expired on July 22 last. The judge imposed a 30-day prison sentence in case of non-payment.

The Independent TDs now face the possibility of spending Christmas in jail.

Speaking about the case, Mr. Wallace said: Defending their actions yesterday, Mr Wallace said: “The fact that Shannon continues to be used by the US military should be a cause of concern for the Irish people, now more than ever. The Irish Government is complicit in the mindless destruction wreaked on the Middle East region and beyond by the US military war machine, causing the deaths of hundreds and thousands of innocent civilians and the displacement of millions.”
