Further to the O’Higgins’ Inquiry into Sgt Maurice McCabe’s allegations of malpractice…
Garda Commissioner Nóirín O’Sullivan is appearing before the Policing Authority at the King’s Inns, Dublin 7 NOW.
You may recall how, during the O’Higgins’ Commission of Investigation into Sgt McCabe’s allegations, Colm Smyth, SC, initially told Judge Kevin O’Higgins that, on behalf of Ms O’Sullivan, his instructions were to “challenge the integrity of Sgt McCabe and his motivation”.
This was based on a meeting in Mullingar between Sgt McCabe and two gardaí.
Several months later, on the day Commissioner O’Sullivan was due to give evidence – by which time Sgt McCabe had produced a transcript of his meeting in Mullingar with two gardaí – Mr Smyth told Judge O’Higgins: “The position now is that his motive is under attack, credibility is under attack from the Commissioner. But not his integrity.”
