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. Joining Sean was Tom Lyons of the Irish Times.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0722/632333-today-with-sean-o-rourke-tuesday-22-july-2014/?clipid=1634956
Later today the Dail will debate a Fianna Fail motion of no confidence in the Minister for Justice. The Justice Committee also meets this afternoon to decide whether or not to hear from relevant department of justice officials on the Garda tapes controversy. Will these political manoeuvres shed any more light on what has been another confusing week in the administration of justice in this country? Sean was joined by Fianna Fail TD John McGuinness and Dara Murphy TD of Fine Gael.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0401/605897-today-with-sean-o-rourke-tuesday-1-april-2014/?clipid=1522715
Another day, another Dail committee but the same controversy rumbles on for Irish Water. Today, executives from the company will be joined at the public accounts committee by representatives from the commission for energy regulation and the Department of the Environment. They’ll face questions from politicians on how money is spent at Irish Water , on who knew about the 50 million paid out so far in consultancy fees and on the company’s procurement process. Fianna Fail TD John McGuinness is chairman of the Public Accounts Committee and he joined Sean this morning.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0115/497957-today-with-sean-o-rourke-wednesday-15-january-2014/?clipid=1394724
