RTÉ to make a court application
30 May 2015 07:07
RTÉ is to make an application to the High Court on 2 June for permission to broadcast statements made in the Dáil about businessman Denis O'Brien by Independent TD Catherine Murphy.
In a statement this afternoon, the broadcaster said it has "consistently maintained that greater levels of disclosure is in the public interest; however we have complied fully with the court’s decision."
The statement goes on: "we await the outcome of the judge’s ruling on 5 June as regards what level of detail in the court’s judgement can be disclosed.
"Lawyers acting on behalf of RTÉ have already raised concern about the scope of the proposed orders to be made by the court.
"Every effort will continue to be made by RTÉ to report on this matter as comprehensively as possible, as early as possible, within the limits of the law", the statement said.
