From the weekend…

RTE reported:

“The internal Audit Committee of An Garda Síochána has said it was “very concerned” that senior garda management did not tell it about the existence of thousands of fake breath tests or unreliable fixed notice convictions.”

“…The committee, which oversees spending in the force, said it was kept totally in the dark over both issues despite senior management knowing about them in the previous year.”

Declan Brennan, in the Irish Times, reports that another Garda whistleblower has come forward, claiming to have come under severe pressure after he arrested an off-duty plainclothes detective for drunk driving.

Pearse Doherty, Sinn Féin TD for Donegal South West, is likely to use Dail privilege to name the whistleblower this week.

Mr Brennan reports:

“The drink-driving charge against the plainclothes garda was adjourned a number of times in court and was ultimately struck out on a legal issue by a District Court judge.”

“The arrest at the centre of this case took place during a routine Garda checkpoint in the midlands when the garda involved carried out a roadside alcohol test on an off-duty detective. He then arrested the detective on suspicion of drunk driving. The suspect was tested at the local station and found to be over the legal limit. He was subsequently charged with driving under the influence of alcohol. The two gardaí knew each other and the arresting garda claims that the detective was unhappy about the arrest.”
