    Garda Whistleblowing Controversy

    Garda Whistleblowing Controversy

    Another week has begun and the garda whistleblowing controversy shows no signs of abating with the Irish Times revealing today that garda sergeant Maurice McCabe first approached  the  authorities with his concerns back in 2008.  Meanwhile, Fianna Fail  has described the assertion by Tanaiste Eamon Gilmore that  the dossier handed over by Micheal Martin to the Taoiseach was “incomplete” as a “red herring”. Joining Sean was Harry McGee, political correspondent of the Irish Times.


    Yesterday, the chairman of the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission, Simon O’Brien, told the Oireachtas Public Service and Oversight Commission he suspects the organisation’s office was under some sort of surveillance. He also said the commission was investigating the source of a leak which led to details of the security sweep entering the public domain. He said it was highly likely that information has come from documents within GSOC, with less than seven people having access to the documents. Sean spoke with Fianna Fail leader, Micheal Martin and with former Garda Ombudsman, Conor Brady.
