From top: Maurice McCabe and Former Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan at Dublin Castle this afternoon
At the Disclosures Tribunal in Dublin Castle.
Former Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan gave evidence before Supreme Court judge Peter Charleton who is examining allegations of a smear campaign against Garda whistleblower Sgt Maurice McCabe.
Mr Callinan said Sgt McCabe was right to report his allegations of wrongdoing and that he was “proved to be correct on quite a large amount of the issues that he has raised” before adding “and we know the criticism in relation to other matters”.
Mr Callinan also said that he would be the first to acknowledge that Sgt McCabe “has identified and did identify weaknesses in my system”.
