The Burkean has received reports and evidence of a migrant exposing himself and defecating by the road at the site of an ongoing standoff between angry locals and the government (who are trying to plant the area with foreign men).
The incident occurred on the afternoon of Saturday 20th. The witnesses recounted the scene:
“As we were passing by in the car we spotted an ethnically Indian/South-Asian man acting strangely. He seemed to be squatting on a post to the side of one of the outbuildings near the hotel.
Upon closer inspection he had his pants down and appeared to be defecating or attempting to defecate off the post.
As soon as he spotted us he immediately pulled up his pants and quickly went back inside the hotel.
While this was happening a group of foreign men were talking to what appeared to be journalists or NGOs just around the corner.
We saw him clearly pull his pants down, exposing himself.”Local witness
From the grainy images taken by the witnesses, it is clear that the man was publicly in a state of undress.
The witness says they are reporting the incident to local Gardaí. Sex crimes and indecency acts by migrants has become a political flashpoint in recent years all over Europe. This anger seems to be contributing to the overwhelming local opposition to mass importation of (largely fraudulent) asylum seekers by the Irish government.
Protests at the site in Inch are ongoing. In the nearby village of Scool, also in Co. Clare, locals have begun a blockade of a site touted to be used to house dozens of migrants.
