The High Court has ordered the arrest of Independent local election candidate Patricia McCafferty, Donegal electoral area, after she failed to remove allegedly defamatory posts about Bundoran Town Council on YouTube.

Justice Paul Galligan ordered the arrest of the Ind. election candidate and ordered that she be brought before the High Court after she failed to remove the video clips, despite being ordered to do so.

Lawyers for Bundoran Town Council claim that its members and officials have been defamed in the posts where allegations of corruption fraud and intimidation are made by Ms. McCafferty, who was dismissed in 2008 by the council.
