Law being proposed this week will make the picketing of politicians’ Private Homes Illegal
A new law being proposed this week will make the picketing of politicians’ private homes a criminal offence.
Fianna Fáil Senator Malcolm Byrne is to introduce the Protection of Private Residences against Targeted Picketing Bill in the Seanad this week.
A first offence would see a fine, while a second or subsequent offence could see a fine of up to €5,000 or 12 months in prison if convicted.
A number of protests have taken place outside or near politicians’ private homes in recent months, including Minister Simon Harris and Tánaiste Leo Varadkar.
