Justice4all.ie welcomes the resignation of the Minister for Justice, Mr Alan Shatter

Subject: Minister for justice resignation – statement from justice4all

8th May 2014

This resignation has come not a day too early, we believe as a JUSTICE group his position had become untenable owing to the growing list of controversies surrounding him. Mr Shatter, in his role of Minister for Justice has had three years to completely overhaul the legislation covering the operation of the Garda Siochana Ombudsman Commission, to which he failed dismally. In a separate issue, Mr Shatter clearly showed his lack of integrity when he clearly broke data protection laws live on television by relaying information obtained from a former Garda Commissioner, which we as a JUSTICE group find to be ‘DISGUSTING’.

Mr Shatter’s resistance to change and inability to see the major failures within the current policing system, we found to be astonishing. We believe the future Minister for Justice should seek a major radical overhaul on how policing is managed in our police force, An Garda Siochana. Justice4all.ie also demands accountability, openness to change and ability to see the major flaws in the current justice system that is in place, from our future JUSTICE Minister.


We will not accept false promises and demand the eradication of Garda corruption and malpractice from our police force, we once again call for the complete overhaul of the legislation covering the operation of the Garda Siochana Ombudsmans Office and for the introduction of a policing board for the appointment of senior Gardaí. Democracy is about equality, justice and liberty.

    We now need to make sure that Francis Fitzgerald takes the right steps to correct the wrongs of the past. I suggest that all who made submissions to Alan Shatter to do the same again to the new Minister for Justice and Equality if only to see if she is serious about carrying out her new portfolio properly

    I email new minister for justice to remind her ( 1 ) the court refuse to issue the judgment in my case due to the fact that I prove in court that the gardai fabricate evidences against me the 17th feb 2014. ( 2 ) concerning the documents stolen by sgt O’Connor at the Bergeron crime scene……. SHATTER refuse to investigate obvious cases of corruption to protect the corrupted system. Ms Fitzgerald must know put up the theory of her speech in practice…

    Well done to the committee and all supporters of justice4all who have supported the whistle-blowers John Wilson and Maurice McCabe. The people of Ireland should be very proud and thankful for what they have done for all of us.
