“Victims of alleged Garda malpractice deserve our full support” Lynn Boylan MEP

6 May, 2015 - by Lynn Boylan MEP


MEPs Lynn Boylan and Matt Carthy have welcomed a delegation of victims and campaigners of alleged Garda malpractice to the European Parliament in Brussels yesterday. The group, headed up by investigative journalist Gemma O Doherty, met with Oliver Tell from the Commission office of DG Justice and discussed their cases with him.

Speaking after the delegation visit Ms. Boylan said:

“The Families for Justice had the opportunity to bring their cases into a European forum as they felt their concerns were not being addressed by the relevant institutions in Ireland.  

A number of avenues that the families could explore including the European Court of Human Rights were highlighted at the hearing and I will work with the families as they seek to explore them.

I welcome the fact that a lot our fellow Irish MEPs made the time to come and listen to these campaigners and committed to doing what they can to support the families.
