In a recent sitting of the European Parliament two Irish members, Mick Wallace (pictured left) and Clare Daly (pictured right), attempted to effectively scrutinise a representative of the OPCW, who claimed that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons against his own people at Douma on 17 April 2018.

This report disregarded findings of OPCW inspectors who had visited the site of the alleged chemical weapons attack.

On this critical and urgent issue of the alleged gas attack by the Syrian 'regime', each member of the European Parliament was only allowed one minute to question the OPCW representative. The Speaker even interrupted Clare Daly before she had completed her one minute, claiming that she was repeating what Mick Wallace had already said.
