2 April, 2015 - by Pádraig Mac Lochlainn


Sinn Féin Justice Spokesperson Pádraig Mac Lochlainn has called on the Minister for Justice and Equality, Frances Fitzgerald to publish the findings and recommendations of the Independent Review Panel of barristers established by the Government to examine the allegations of Garda malpractice.

Deputy Mac Lochlainn said:

“There are growing concerns among the families who have submitted their allegations about this process to either the Minister or the Taoiseach regarding both the process and delay.

“This review was originally supposed to last for a few months. Eight months later, we still have no report back from this process. It is unacceptable.”

“Families who have already gone through so many traumas and genuinely felt this process might help them have now been left waiting and waiting. The Minister must move to publish the findings as soon as possible”
