Taoiseach fails to answer questions on his role with the Fennelly Commission Ongoing – Adams

20 February, 2015 - by Gerry Adams TD


Sinn Féin Leader Gerry Adams TD has said that Taoiseach Enda Kenny’s refusal to give a straight answer to as to whether he was recalled to the Fennelly Commission raises more questions around his role in the retirement of Garda Commissioner.

Deputy Adams said:

“The Taoiseach last night again refused to give a simple answer to the straight question as to whether he is one of three witnesses recalled to give further evidence to the Fennelly Commission.”

 “I gave evidence to the Fennelly commission, there is no breach in confidence in me that.  If I was called back I would have no problem in confirming that also. I am not asking the Taoiseach to disclose his conversation or the evidence he gave but he should make clear whether he was sent for again by the Commission.”

 “By his failure to answer this question in a clear way, the Taoiseach has continued to fuel speculation around the retirement of the Garda Commissioner, the movement of the Secretary General and the resignation of Minister Shatter.”
