Department of Defence
365. To ask the Taoiseach and Minister for Defence the status of the investigations by the United Nations Office of Internal Oversight Services into claims of abuse and exploitation on United Nations peacekeeping missions relevant to Ireland; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [27549/22]
In March of this year, my Department made contact with the United Nations Office of Internal Oversight Services (UNOIOS) following reports that an individual had provided information to that Office. Inquiries made established that the reports made to UNOIOS had already been reported to Irish authorities. UNOIOS confirmed that the information provided to them will not require investigation by the United Nations.
