I have given the Deputy information which stated further information was supplied by complainants in more than 200 cases. That is the fact of the matter. I do not know with which complainants the Deputy is in touch. I accept her bona fides but I am telling her more than 200 gave further information. The process of the independent review is not a commission of investigation or an inquiry designed to make findings such as a commission would. Its purpose was to triage the allegations to see whether further action was needed. I have given an indication of the type of further action recommended in some of the cases which have been seen. The letters have begun to go out on the cases which are completed and this process has been overseen by an independent judge.

I am still waiting on word about my case. the Garda leaving me at risk from domestic violence. failing to investigate the crimes that were committed against me. I went through all the legal steps to have it address. I am still a victim of domestic abuse via the family courts. GSOC allowed the GARDA to cover up the members that were in breach. they could do nothing about the final result of the section 94 process. the Garda covered up serious complaints and got away with it. where is the justice for the women in this country I would ask.
