Fianna Fail claims Alan Shatter mislead the Dail in relation to alleged GSOC bugging

Niall Collins   The Fianna Fail Justice spokesperson has accused Alan Shatter of misleading the Dáil in relation to bugging claims at the offices of the Garda Ombudsman Commission. Niall Collins says the Justice Minister was informed on Monday by Ombudsman Simon O’Brien that they had begun a ‘public interest’ investigation focused on An Garda Síochana –  the same report was given to the Public Service Oversight Committee last Wednesday. The news comes on the back of revelations in the Sunday Times today that a security sweep at GSOC was carried out after it emerged that a senior Garda appeared to have information about a case being investigated by them.
