15 May, 2017 - by Jonathan O'Brien TD


Sinn Féin Justice spokesperson Jonathan O’Brien has called on Minister Frances Fitzgerald to come into the Dáil this week to answer questions in relation to an alleged phone tap on the phone of a political activist.

Speaking today Teachta O’Brien also called on Independent News and Media to provide information it has in relation to the story to Minister Fitzgerald in order to help get to the truth of the matter.

He said;

“Revelations this weekend of a potential politically motivated phone tap on an innocent person are extremely concerning.  It is essential that we get to the truth of this matter and equally as important that the person or persons responsible are held to account for their actions.

“It is clear that Independent News and Media are in possession of information that could help an investigation into this matter.  There is therefore an onus on that organisation to provide any information in its possession to the Minister to help get to the truth.”
