Via The Irish Times:
Records released under the Freedom of Information Act to the Sinn Féin TD Pearse Doherty and seen by The Irish Times show increasingly urgent attempts by Mr Harris to obtain a copy of the draft agreement between the State and the Irish Medical Organisation (IMO). This was happening at the same time as Mr Varadkar had posted a copy to the home address of Dr Ó Tuathail, who was head of the now-defunct National Association of General Practitioners (NAGP).
The problem for @LeoVaradkar is that as @SimonHarrisTD, the Minister, didn’t have the contract he can’t have authorised the leak.
Varadkar loses his criminal defence.
Official Secrets Act s4 ~ requires a leak be authorised by a ‘Minister/State authority’ https://t.co/YW4D5sjJQF pic.twitter.com/0cNyL7GCn1
