The Guerin report has been described as serious and damning
The Government will today publish the report by barrister Seán Guerin into allegations that serious crimes were not investigated properly by gardaí.
The report, which runs to 300 pages, has been described as serious and damning.
Its findings led to a Government decision to set up a Commission of Inquiry and to the resignation of Alan Shatter as minister for justice.
Meanwhile, the interim Garda Commissioner has defended the right of gardaí to raise issues of concern and promised support for any member of the force who wishes to do so.
Noirín O’Sullivan issued the statement following claims in the Dáil by Deputy Luke “Ming” Flanagan.
He said that a garda based in Athlone had made allegations of serious Garda misconduct to Judge Patrick McMahon, the interim Garda Confidential Recipient.
