The President of the Association of Garda Sergeants and Inspectors has said it is concerned by the decision to assign the role of receiving confidential information from garda whistleblowers to the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission. The decision was made by Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald yesterday.

Tim Galvin said people would be very nervous about going to GSOC and then whatever issues they might have would not come out into the open. Speaking on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland, Mr Galvin also said he believed more garda whistleblowers would come forward. He said: “If we have skeletons in the cupboard, let’s bring them out. Get them out into the open.

The Guerin report raises “fundamental issues about An Garda Síochána, their investigation of criminal cases and the responses to serious concerns raised about them”, Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald has told the Dáil. In her first address to the House in her new portfolio, she also said the report raises fundamental issues about “Garda management and oversight, basic policing procedures and the role of bodies such as GSOC [Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission] and the Department of Justice and Equality”.
