Sinn Féin Justice spokesperson Jonathan O'Brien has said comments from the Chairperson of the Policing Authority Josephine Feehily today reinforce the urgent need for Garda Commissioner Noirín O'Sullivan to step aside for the duration of the Charleton Tribunal.

Speaking this afternoon Teachta O'Brien said;

"We have repeatedly called for the Commissioner to stand aside for the duration of the tribunal, and Feehily's comments reinforce the urgent need for that to happen.


"The Policing Authority do not make such comments lightly and there is an onus on the Commissioner, but also the government, to address this immediately."
