A Belfast man has launched High Court proceedings in Belfast over featuring on a Facebook page about alleged paramilitary informers. McIvor Farrell Solicitors are seeking an order in Belfast High Court that Facebook must ensure the profile ‘INLA Touts’ does not reappear.

Paul Farrell of McIvor Farrell Solicitors Belfast said:

This is an important case in a developing area of law. It’s crucial that individuals rights are protected and that pages such as this are robustly dealt with by Facebook.

Mr Farrell added: “Our client is concerned for his safety and denies any wrongdoing whatsoever.”
