Shoukri case withdrawn and no prosecutions over illegal Dunloy protest

Charges have been withdrawn against Ihab Shoukri and the DPP has decided not to proceed against those involved in an illegal protest in Dunloy.Judge Burgess’s commented that the prosecution;

“may have to consider wider issues than those before the court.”

Chief Inspector Wallace said that;

“…the reasons for not prosecuting were confidential.”

Both comments will raise again the issue of the reasons for prosecutorial inaction being made public.

PS Before everyone starts I am aware in the different nature and seriousness of the charges and not equating them the common thread is the lack of information.
