Court order against Cairn protesters
Wednesday 20 July 2011
Cairn Energy, the oil prospector whose Edinburgh offices were targeted by Greenpeace activists dressed up as polar bears on Monday, has been granted a court order to prevent a repeat of the incident.
Cairn said the Court of Session in Edinburgh had granted the interim interdict "against certain Greenpeace organisations" who breached security at the FTSE 100-listed group's headquarters in the Scottish capital. The interdict also prevents publication of any company information accessed during the protest.
Earlier, more than 60 protesters entered the company's premises, with around half dressed as polar bears. They were demanding that Cairn publish details of how it would respond in the event of an oil spill at its Arctic operations off the Greenland coast. Cairn, however, said it was following official norms by not making the documents publicly available.
