Metgasco won't release thieves' photos for publication

METGASCO has supplied three pictures to the police which they say prove their claims that anti-CSG protestors stole $5500 worth of seismic equipment at Casino on the weekend.

The Northern Star has been given copies of the pictures by Metgasco on the proviso that they not be published due to their concerns it may compromise the police investigation.

The pictures show two women carrying a bundle of black cables standing with anti-CSG protesters.

It comes on top of claims of threats and intimidation to Metgasco staff and contractors on the weekend. The company's chief Peter Henderson has called for protest spokesman Adam Guise to pressure those responsible to return the property and apologise to affected local business owners.

Mr Guise rejected claims he should be personally responsible for the actions of all protestors.

He said Metgasco was using the issue as a smokescreen to divert attention from the real issue which was they had no social licence to operate in the Northern Rivers.

Some of the gear has been returned.
