    GSOC Bugging Controversy

    The inquiry by former High Court judge John Cooke has found no evidence that the Garda Ombudsman’s office was bugged or that the Gardai were involved.  The report investigated three possible breaches of security – ruled out two but in one case raised a suspicion that a phone in the office was bugged. Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald says there’s now a need for a “new culture” of co-operation between the Ombudsman’s office and the Garda Siochana.
