« BackMc Cabe family supports retention of Special Criminal Court

Gavel 1The family of murdered Ballylongford Garda Jerry Mc Cabe have supported calls for the retention of the Special Criminal Court.

Detective Garda Mc Cabe was murdered by the IRA in a raid in Adare in 1996.

Speaking on Kerry Today this morning his brother in law Pat Kearney, who is from Castleisland, said the work of the court had succesfully taken up to 60 criminals off the streets of Limerick.

He said that the family believed that the Special Criminal Court should remain part of the justice system.

Mr Kearney said that fears of witness and jury intimidation are a reality.
