TAOISEACH SPEAKS ON SECRET TELEPHONE CALLS IN THE DAIL
The Taoiseach’s given the clearest signal yet that the Justice Minister will acknowledge that Gardai didn’t do enough to get the co-operation of whistleblowers.
Enda Kenny’s also confirmed that a civil servant was sent to the former Garda Commissioner on Monday night.
That was only 12 hours before Martin Callinan decided to take early retirement – but Enda Kenny’s denied he sacked him.
Enda Kenny’s also confirmed that Attorney General Máire Whelan wouldn’t discuss the issue of the secret recording of telephone calls over the phone, and sought a meeting in person at 6 o’clock on Sunday evening.
