Penalty points were wiped after they were accrued by a car registered to an Independent News and Media editor.
Stephen Rae was involved in the decision to make leading journalist Gemma O’Doherty redundant in the weeks after she approached the Garda commissioner to check if he had penalty points removed from his licence.
A vehicle registered to Rae, editor-in-chief of the Irish Independent and other INM titles, accrued penalty points at 6.37am on November 5, 2009 at the N11, Belfield, Dublin before the points were terminated.
….Her forcing out has brought condemnation from journalists at top British and international publications but has so far been ignored by Ireland’s leading newspapers and RTE.
