The Dail at the Convention Centre, Dublin.
Sinn Féin TDs walked out of the Dáil chamber before a vote to extend the Special Criminal Court for another year. Sinn Féin has previously said its TDs would abstain from the vote pending a review of the Court.
SCC has been criticised by Irish Council Civil Liberties, Amnesty International & United Nations for its procedure & being a special court, which ordinarily should not be used against civilians. Criticisms are the lack of a jury, & increasing use of court to try "ordinary" crimes
