Penalty points scandal report to be published

The hilariously entitled ‘independent’ internal Garda investigation into allegations that up to 100,000 penalty points may have been quashed is complete and the report is with the Minister for Justice.

I contacted the Minister’s office to ask if and when the report would be published.

Dear Mr Sheridan,

I am directed by the Minister for Justice, Equality and Defence, Mr Alan
Shatter, T.D. to refer further to your recent email concerning allegations 
relating to the processing of fixed charge notices by An Garda Síochána. 



The Garda Commissioner’s report of the examination into allegations 
concerning the enforcement of road traffic legislation was received in the
 Department.

The Minister intends to bring the report to Government at the
 earliest opportunity and to publish the findings thereafter. 


Yours sincerely

Here’s a mad guess – the report will be published on the last day of this Dail term, just before they all head off for a long, long summer holiday.

  1. Neither mad nor guess will appear so far off the mark.
    At all.
    It’s a scenario perhaps wherein hangs the crux of where focus needs be put by all.
