Yesterday at the High Court lawyers for former Rehab Chief Executive Angela Kerins claimed members of the Dail’s Public Accounts Committee had engaged in a “witch hunt” when she appeared before the committee last February. They also claimed that she lost her job and suffered illness as a result. Ms Kerins has filed a court action for arising from the committee’s investigation into the disability group. Earlier on Morning Ireland the Public Accounts Committee chairman John McGuinness said the PAC will be robustly defending its position in the courts.
