Department of Justice and Equality
Garda Misconduct Allegations
327. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality the status of the section 42 inquiry recommended by the Independent Review Mechanism into complaints made by a person (details supplied); and if he will make a statement on the matter. [2655/20]
I can confirm that the Inquiry referred to by the Deputy is ongoing.
In November 2019, I granted an extension of time until June 2020 for the Inquiry. I am satisfied this was appropriate in order to ensure that sufficient time is available to allow a proper consideration of all relevant matters.
After receipt of the final report, the question of whether any further action is warranted will be considered.
