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