FENNELLY COMMISSION TERMS OF REFERENCE NEED AMENDING – MacLOCHALINN

first_imgSinn Féin Justice Spokesperson, Pádraig Mac Lochlainn has called on the Government to amend the terms of reference of the Fennelly Commission, as the current terms of reference prevent the examination of allegations of bugging of conversations in some Garda stations by Gardaí.Deputy Padraig Mac LochlainnResponding to the revelations which were published in the Sunday Business Post today, Deputy Mac Lochlainn said it is clear that the Government must amend the terms of reference of the Fennelly Commission.“It would be farcical for the Commission to only examine tapes of recorded phone conversations at some Garda stations and not examine allegations of bugging at Garda stations. “This latest development demonstrates again the problems with the Commission, from the decision by the Government to instigate the Commission and its terms of reference in an environment of political panic, to the outrageous length of time it has taken for the public to learn the Commission’s findings on the circumstances leading to the sudden retirement of the Garda Commissioner, Martin Callinan.“It is long past time that the Fennelly Commission’s interim report on those circumstances was published.”FENNELLY COMMISSION TERMS OF REFERENCE NEED AMENDING – MacLOCHALINN was last modified: July 5th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
