Ombudsman and Information Commissioner Emily O’Reilly, pictured launching her 15th annual report today, has suggested the public is ‘really puzzled’ by the Kieran Boylan case and the subsequent Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission’s report into allegations of collusion between the drug dealer and the Gardaí.
“Obviously we have to take GSOC seriously. Clearly we also have to take the Gardaí and the Department of Justice seriously as well, but I just feel, as a citizen, that we haven’t got to the nub of it yet. I think a lot of people are really puzzled as to where the truth lies in relation to this, and I think the media has a responsibility, actually, to perhaps dig a little deeper into this for the sake of clarity for the public.”
