Taoiseach must make clarifying Statement

1 April, 2008

Speaking ahead of the Taoiseach's High Court challenge today Sinn Féin Dáil Leader Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin has called on Bertie Ahern to make a full and comprehensive statement clarifying his previous statements to the Mahon Tribunal and in the Dáil chamber.

Deputy Ó Caoláin said today, "There are clear contradictions between the testimonies of An Taoiseach and those of others, including his former secretary, that require an immediate clarification. The Taoiseach has questions to answer and should have done so unhesitatingly. His failure, so far, to address the contradictions arising from Ms. Carruth's responses at the Tribunal has further fuelled public anxiety over this long drawn out and sorry saga.

"He should make a full and frank statement clarifying these contradictions immediately". ENDS
