IFA Opposes Court Order by Meat Factories Looking to Jail Farmers

28 August 2019

IRELAND - IFA understood that meat factories would seek to obtain attachment and committal order in the High Court against farmers who protested at meat plants.

IFA was in the High Court, opposing this application.

IFA President Joe Healy said that beef farmers are frustrated and angry, hauling them before the courts will solve nothing.

"We have instructed our legal team to fully oppose this application to allow time to see if a resolution can be found," he said.
