A Fresh Complaint

Former Garda Commissioner Noirin O’Sullivan and former Minister for Justice and current Tanaiste France Fitzgerald

This morning.

Further to questions remaining over what former Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald and the Department of Justice knew of the legal strategy which was employed against Sgt Maurice McCabe during the O’Higgins Commission of Investigation in 2015…

Because, readers will recall, the legal strategy of the then Garda Commissioner Noirin O’Sullivan was outlined at the commission but later dropped after Sgt McCabe proved claims made by the legal counsel for Ms O’Sullivan, and claims outlined in a five-page letter by the Chief State Solicitor Eileen Creedon, now a High Court judge, were untrue…

And how nothing of this abandoned strategy was recorded in the commission’s final report…

And how the Secretary General of the Department of Justice Noel Waters announced he’s stepping down in February – within hours of the Dail hearing of reports of a phone call from Ms O’Sullivan’s office to Mr Waters on May 15, 2015 – the same day Sgt McCabe delivered his first blow to Ms O’Sullivan’s legal strategy…

Daniel McConnell, in the Irish Examiner, writes:

Dáil chairman, Ceann Comhairle Seán Ó Fearghail, is “considering” a fresh complaint from Labour TD Alan Kelly over information he sought over the treatment of Garda whistleblower Maurice McCabe.

Mr Ó Fearghail yesterday received new correspondence from Mr Kelly and he is now taking the matter under consideration for adjudication, a spokeswoman for the Oireachtas said.

    Nothing seems to be learned from the continual lies & attempts at cover up.

    If the dept of justice knew of the legal strategy ahead of it being used, Fitzgerald et al should just say yes, that’s what we were told…they wouldn’t have been told the legal strategy was based on lies..or if anyone was told, it’s more liking whispers in carparks..they’ll be no evidence of it… but instead they’ll deny they knew, get caught out because of course they knew…& then they’re up sh*ts creek without a paddle for the lies, when the truth would be much easier.

    Nothing will happen and there will be no consequences for anyone involved, except maybe retiring early on the back of the taxpayer. You got to love the elite!

    So their spin team have managed to replace whatever words you might use to describe what was done to McCabe with ‘legal strategy’?
