FIVE PEOPLE WHO were arrested yesterday for throwing paint at the Department of Justice have been released from custody.

The five were protesting what they see as the whitewashing of the GardaGate scandal. The sign, windows and pillars at Alan Shatter’s department were daubed with paint, with members of An Garda Síochána also hit.

Around 20 people gathered outside the department on St Stephen’s Green yesterday evening at the protest organised by the Dublin Says No group.

Four men and one woman were arrested and brought to Pearse Street Garda station where they were charged and released.

They are due to appear in court later this month.
