Department of Justice and Equality
124. To ask the Minister for Justice and Equality in relation to a private, registered members-only internet chat and information forum (details supplied); the extent to which this forum would be liable under the Incitement to Hatred Act if a racist discussion took place against the Roma Community, where the web chat site administrator was also involved in the conversation; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [47333/13]
I am informed by the Garda authorities that the material referred to is being examined by An Garda Síochána. The Deputy will appreciate that the question of any further action or investigation in relation to this issue is a matter for the Garda authorities and it would not be appropriate for me to comment in this regard.
