An update on our meeting with Attorney General Yvette D’Ath who initially stated that the Government is not reconsidering its position at this time with respect to the membership however did give us the opportunity to voice our concerns & has committed to take our concerns to the Government & report back to us. We will early this week provide a further written submission reinforcing the position we took in the meeting.
We highlighted the broad range of voices this campaign is representing & drew attention to the fact that we are not the only ones speaking against this appointment. We outlined that this appointment is seen as an endorsement of the President of the Police Union in the shadow of the significant harm caused by recent comments. We highlighted that there are victims who are contacting us advising of the harm this appointment has caused to them.
Minister Enoch’s office has committed to scheduling a meeting with us & facilitating a meeting with Minister Ryan.
