Shane Phelan, in the Irish Independent, reports:
Former Garda commissioner Martin Callinan will not have to pay any legal costs in connection with his representation at the Disclosures Tribunal, despite its findings he waged a “campaign of calumny” against whistleblower Sergeant Maurice McCabe.
Mr Callinan was represented by the Chief State Solicitor’s Office at the tribunal and his legal bill is being paid out of the taxpayer-funded office’s resources, sources have told the Irish Independent.
However, former Garda press officer David Taylor, who assisted Mr Callinan in the campaign, could have to pay some or all of his costs.
