GARDA OMBUDSMAN INVESTIGATION OF POLICE CORRUPTION ALLEGATIONS AGAINST SHELL IS STILL IN PROGRESS

Terence Conway stated “It was good to finally meet a Garda who is trying to deal with the corruption within An Garda Siochana.  Unfortunately senior Garda management are content with corruption within the force”. Speaking at the protest Maura Harrington stated that policing in the country is “rotten from the top down”.

News release – Issued by Shell to Sea – Monday 16th December 2013

A group from Shell to Sea – Erris travelled to Limerick on Friday 13th December to attend a Justice 4 All protest outside Henry Street police station.  This was a follow-on from the recent Peoples’ Forum – “Who Polices the Police?”, which was addressed among others by Mick Wallace TD and Clare Daly TD [1].

John Wilson, one of the two garda whistle blowers, who raised the penalty points scandal addressed the protest and castigated both the Commissioner Martin Callinan and Minister for Justice Alan Shatter saying that the force, as found by the Smithwick tribunal, still places loyalty above honesty [2].

The protest was attended by four sitting TD’s – Mick Wallace, Clare Daly, Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan and Joan Collins.  The attendance included many families whose lives have been taken over for years following the deaths of family members and these deaths have not, to date, been adequately investigated.

Terence Conway stated “It was good to finally meet a Garda who is trying to deal with the corruption within An Garda Siochana.  Unfortunately senior Garda management are content with corruption within the force”.
