O'Sullivan unaware of murder case
28 Apr 2015 16:04
The Garda Commissioner has said she is not aware of any case where gardaí covered up the murder of a civilian by a member of the force.
-
Independent TD Clare Daly made the allegation in the Dáil two weeks ago.
-
-
-
Ms Daly said a garda witnessed a colleague shooting a member of the public but was told by senior officers to say he was not present during the incident.
-
Commissioner Nóirín O’Sullivan said this afternoon she was aware of the allegation but not of any specifics and said anyone with information on the case should bring it to her or to the Garda Ombudsman Commission.
-
Ms O’Sullivan said there was no garda investigation under way into the claim and that the force would need more specifics before concluding that this was an allegation of murder.
-
She said if any elected representative or member of the public came forward with information on this allegation it would be investigated.
-
The commissioner also said that gardaí who had been named under Dáil privilege were entitled to their good names and character.
-
Unsubstantiated allegations, she said, were very damaging and should be brought to an appropriate forum to be investigated.
