GUERIN REPORT PUBLISHED
The 336 page report that led to the resignation of Alan Shatter as Justice Minister has been published in the past few minutes, and calls for the establishment of a Commission of Investigation.
It says that the Minister did not heed complaints from a member of the force.
The document praises the Garda whistleblowe, Sergeant Maurice McCabe, who brought his concerns about the adequacy of investigations in the Bailieboro district.
Wexford native Seán Guerin, Senior Counsel says the way Segreant McCabe has been treated since making his complaints needs to be examined.
He says changes in Garda practices are required in the taking of statements when complaints are withdrawn, that the force needs to review if the PULSE system is effective in dealing with compliance with bail, and that the operation of the station bail system needs review.
