Department of Justice and Equality
725. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality if she will provide a list of all criminals convicted by the Special Criminal Court since its inception; the sentence term in respect of each criminal; the offence caused by each respective criminal; the dates upon which the criminals were convicted and released and left custody where relevant; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [37143/22]
The Special Criminal Court is established pursuant to Part V of the Offences Against the State Act 1939. The Court deals with cases involving the prosecution of terrorist offences, and organised crime.
Unfortunately, the detailed information sought by the Deputy is not maintained by my Department. However, the Courts Service Annual Report, which is publically available, provides statistics, including statistics relating to proceedings before the Special Criminal Court.
