CHASE PRESS RELEASE - 9 November, 2011
EPA CREDIBILITY BLASTED
Today’s appointment by Environment Minister
Phil Hogan of Laura Burke, former Project Manager with Indaver Ireland,
as Director General of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) blasts
the credibility of the EPA into oblivion, and exposes continuing government
allegiance to developers and industry over and above environmental
The EPA cannot claim independence while such seeding from vested interests into positions of influence continues.
Government, Developer, the EPA, IBEC and Bord
Pleanala make up a cosy cartel which pays lip service to communities.
It’s become clearer than ever today that the only protector
of the community is the community itself.”
