Irish Senator Sharon Keogan asked her government to protect its citizens’ privacy.
(LifeSiteNews) – A senator from Ireland directly called out Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s use of the Emergencies Act (EA) to freeze the bank accounts of some associated with the Freedom Convoy as a “chilling” example of government overreach.
On May 10 during a debate regarding Irish COVID support programs, independent Irish Senator Sharon Keogan spoke about Trudeau’s use of the EA as a dangerous example of what can happen when governments abuse their power to go after one’s finances.
Keogan said that “recent global events have given rise to concern over State control of private finances.”
“The extrajudicial freezing of assets and transactions by the Canadian government of individuals deemed associated with anti-government protests provides a chilling case study in the abuse of centralized power,” she added.
During her speech on May 10, Keogan then asked what the Irish government was doing to ensure that its citizens’ privacy would be protected.
The Freedom Convoy, which took to the streets of Ottawa to demand an end to all COVID mandates for three weeks in February, resulted in Trudeau on February 14 enacting the EA to shut them down.
