Agriculture Minister claims death threats were made against C&D management

Farmers are furious with Minister Michael Creed after he stated in the Dail yesterday that death threats were made against management at C&D foods in Longford during the beef crisis protests.

Farmers say no such threats were made against the factory, which has yet to lift injunctions against two farmers that resulted from the beef crisis blockades.

Minister Creed made the remarks during a discussion yesterday afternoon in the Dail on the beef task force and the fact that it hasn’t met so far.
