Police corruption may bring down the Irish government

The Financial Times is reporting that “Ireland is facing a political crisis with opposition parties calling for the head of the deputy prime minister over an escalating policing scandal”. The deputy prime minister is Frances Fitzgerald, a person with whom I have corresponded on the same subject. Police (Gardai) corruption in Ireland. 

The article goes on to say: The prime minister faces a choice between allowing Ms Fitzgerald to be removed or leave, or continuing to support her and risking the collapse of deal with Fianna Fáil that underpins his minority government.

Calls for Fitzgerald’s resignation came after revelations she was aware of Gardai strategy to discredit Garda whistleblower Sgt Maurice McCabe.

“All this time, the Minister for Justice continued to state her full confidence in the Garda Commissioner who was responsible for this attempt to grievously undermine Sgt McCabe.

I have attached a file containing my direct and indirect correspondence with Frances Fitzgerald in respect of Shell sponsored corruption of the Gardai.

It should have been an open and shut case. Here we had the directors of the firm OSSL distributing the bribes on behalf of Shell freely admitting their role. They supplied a copy of an invoice issued to Shell for over €30,000 worth of alcohol that OSSL delivered to senior police officers.

Incredibly no action was taken against OSSL, no doubt because it would have undermined public confidence in the Irish police and the Irish government.

Instead, the Irish Police conducted two self-investigations and after I caused a rumpus, a third investigations was carried out by a now equally discredited police oversight body, whereby evidence was literally throw in a bin.

As can be seen from the attached correspondence, top people at Shell have knowledge of these matters.

Frances Fitzgerald has also been embroiled in Shell related spying operations in Ireland against environmental protesters.

See Times article “UK police spied on us, protesters tell inquiry“.
