Van Morrison is being sued for defamation following his criticism of North Ireland’s response to COVID. Morrison has been hit with a defamation suit for his comments about North Ireland’s Health Minister Robin Swann.
Morrison has been an outspoken critic of Northern Ireland’s COVID response. He’s written several protest songs about how the restrictions are “taking our freedom” and “enslaving” the public. Minister Swann takes issue with a few comments Morrison has made, like encouraging the crowd at a concert this summer to chant, “Robin Swann is very dangerous.”
Swann is alleging Morrison harmed his reputation and misguided the public during the pandemic. The case is apparently moving forward and a hearing has been set for early 2022.
