Sinn Féin Deputy Leader Mary Lou McDonald has welcomed the decision of the Public Accounts Committee to invite one of the Garda whistleblowers to appear before it on Thursday.
This evening the committee voted to invite the individual to appear in private session.
Deputy McDonald said:
“While it would have been my strong preference to invite the individual to appear before the committee in public session, I defer to the result of the committee vote.
“I have expressed my belief that it is important that the whistleblowers are afforded the opportunity to give evidence.
“I welcome that this opportunity has now been presented.”
