Authority And Abuse

Yesterday.

A former senior garda officer was jailed for four years for sexual assaults on his younger sister in the 1970s.

Via Anon:

An ex-detective Inspector who was attached to a station in south Dublin who pleaded guilty to years of sexual abuse and incest of his sister, was sentenced yesterday

He has put his sister through hell dragging this case out for years.

He was in charge of all sexual abuse cases in the Dublin Southside; he would have written and recommended prosecution or no prosecution on sexual abuses cases in that region.

Every case that he was involved in needs to be opened up and an inquiry is needed into him and what went on from when this case was first reported and how high-ranking officers in Garda National Bureau of Criminal Investigation may have interfered and tried brushing his sexual abuse case under the carpet.

Senior officers allegedly contacted the man’s sister to try and get her to withdraw the complaint, but she refused as the abuse she suffered at his hands was appalling. He was also given character references by senior gardai.

Anyone?

    ‘Senior officers allegedly contacted the man’s sister to try and get her to withdraw the complaint, but she refused as the abuse she suffered at his hands was appalling. He was also given character references by senior gardai’

    So – will those also be prosecuted?

      They really need to name these scum and ensure there is no hiding place for them because families might be identified

    There needs to be an independent enquiry into this inspector . I believe he abused others and every case he was involved in opened up. No garda involvement in the inquiry what so ever ever.

    “…The former officer’s sister came forward about the abuse when she fell seriously ill a number of years ago, it is understood. She made a “dying declaration” statement, which subsequently sparked the major garda investigation. The woman is still fighting for her life because of the illness…”
