Meanwhile, At The Disclosures Tribunal

Garda Keith Harrison and Marissa Simms

The Disclosures Tribunal resumed on Monday in Dublin Castle.

This section of the tribunal does not pertain to Sgt Maurice McCabe but, instead, to Garda Keith Harrison.

Readers will recall how Garda Harrison, who was previously stationed in Athlone, claims he first raised his suspicions that a garda was involved in the distribution of drugs in Athlone in November 2008 but that nothing happened on foot of making his suspicions known.

Garda Harrison later arrested this same garda for drink-driving in June 2009 and claims his working life has been made difficult ever since.

This section of the tribunal is expected to run until around October 3.

Specifically, Supreme Court judge Peter Charleton, who is overseeing the proceedings, is currently tasked with investigating the tribunal’s term of reference ’n’ – which is “to investigate contacts between members of An Garda Siochana and TUSLA in relation to Garda Keith Harrison”.

This arises out of a visit made by social worker Donna McTeague to Garda Harrison and his partner’s home in Donegal in which Ms McTeague spoke with the children in the home in early 2014.

According to the tribunal’s opening statement, Garda Harrision and his partner claim that this visit had “profound effects” on them both.

    Its not news the grada are involved in drugs. I’m not saying they are all selling it or directly making money. But one of there fav little tricks is to get the low/middle level guys who they’ve caught with drugs to set up the really low down the ladder guys. 5 or 6 small level guys is great for a grada when he has all these arrests on his recorder and their superior is looking to promote.

    I met a woman heroin user , children in care , and she was on methadone programme. She explained to me she had lost her two brothers in tragic circumstances and tricked into taking heroin. ( she went looking for so called uppers). She said if you cut her belly open and continually saw her spinal cord with a bread knife , that half describes the pain of withdrawal. Every strand of hair is extremely painful followed by sweats. Its a very cruel addictive drug. Some counties in USA are considering laws that heroin suppliers face manslaughter cases due to tragic deaths from the drug.They shoot you in Indonesia if you bring in heroin.
