Tánaiste must publish McCabe email immediately – Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire TD

21 November, 2017 - by Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire TD

This afternoon on RTÉ Radio 1, the Tánaiste cited an email which she was made aware of last Thursday in relation to what has been described as a 'row' in the O’Higgins Commission, in relation to issues relating to Garda McCabe.

Speaking this evening, Deputy Ó Laoghaire said;

“The Tánaiste must publish this email immediately. It is clearly in the public interest to lay these questions to rest.

“She cannot hide behind the Charleton Tribunal on this as she has herself put parts of this email on to the public record.

"There is a clear contradiction between what was reported in 2016, in relation to the direction given to Garda Legal team in the O'Higgins Commission to undermine Garda McCabe, and what the Tánaiste has put on the record today, which makes reference to potential Criminal Charges.

"There is an enormous discrepancy here, one which raises even further questions. The only way to answer these questions is from publication of this email, and full disclosure."
