Clare Daly TD has welcomed the Minister for Transport Leo Varadkar’s calls for a Garda Ombudsman investigation into the Penalty Points Controversy. Speaking on the matter Clare said, “The minister’s calls for an ombudsman investigation clearly vindicate the argument put forward by myself and others that there are still questions left unanswered regarding the Penalty Points issue and that Assistant Commissioner, John O’ Mahony’s investigation left much to be desired.”

Clare asked the Táiniste Eamon Gilmore if he had confidence in the Minister for Justice and the Garda commissioner in light of the publication of the report into Garda fixing of penalty points notices.
Last night Clare Daly T.D highlighted issues surrounding the credibility of the report into allegations of malpractice relating to penalty point terminations. This was in stark contrast to Minister for Justice Alan Shatter’s view that the report would ensure “the maximum transparency possible” regarding “any investigation into allegations made”.
