Impending retirement of Judge Curtin will not halt investigations of the Oireachtas Committee

Sources close to the investigation into Judge Brian Curtin say his impending retirement next month will not halt the investigations of the Oireachtas committee set up to investigate him. On November 1 next, Judge Curtin will have reached his sixth year on the bench and although he only presided over cases for several months before his arrest he will be eligible to seek retirement. Meanwhile its expected Gardai and computer experts will be present at a full hearing between Judge Curtin`s legal team and the committee when it convenes. This is unlikely to happen until next month at the earliest.
