COP26 - Statement following Rainbow Warrior docking
Statement from Assistant Chief Constable Gary Ritchie regarding the docking of the Rainbow Warrior vessel at the King George V docks.
Assistant Chief Constable Gary Ritchie said:
“The Rainbow Warrior is now docked at the King George V docks in Glasgow; this area is not within the exclusion zone in place for COP26.
“The action taken to facilitate the passage of the Rainbow Warrior was in consultation with the harbour authority and entirely in line with Police Scotland’s stated approach to facilitate peaceful protest during the course of the conference.
“As the vessel has not breached any of the COP26 restrictions, any subsequent action or investigation will be led by the harbour authority."
