Justice4All to present allegations to Shatter

Thursday, October 17th, 2013
Roscommon South Leitrim TD along with the other members of the group Justice4All will today present details to the Justice Minister of 16 individuals – who allege they’ve been seriously mistreated by the Gardaí, the Garda Ombudsman and the judicial system.
Deputy Luke Flanagan says many of these cases concern serious injustices, ranging from boundary disputes to murder.
The group – which also includes TDs Mick Wallace, Clare Daly and Joan Collins, is calling on the Garda Ombudsman Commission to be reformed – as they believe it’s not independent.
Deputy Flanagan says there needs to be a proper mechanism in place to “weed out” those who abuse their powers.
