Public Inquiry · Penalty points scandal report to be published

Public Inquiry · Penalty points scandal report to be published: "Dear Mr Sheridan,

I am directed by the Minister for Justice, Equality and Defence, Mr Alan
Shatter, T.D. to refer further to your recent email concerning allegations 
relating to the processing of fixed charge notices by An Garda Síochána. 



The Garda Commissioner’s report of the examination into allegations 
concerning the enforcement of road traffic legislation was received in the
 Department.

The Minister intends to bring the report to Government at the
 earliest opportunity and to publish the findings thereafter. 


Yours sincerely

Here’s a mad guess – the report will be published on the last day of this Dail term, just before they all head off for a long, long summer holiday."?MANDRAKE?

Tactics & Dirty Tricks

Tactics & Dirty Tricks: "It appears that the standard strategy for dealing with complaints - especially when they concern important or ‘connected persons’ is to target the complainant regardless of the complainant’s personal integrity - or of the legitimacy of their complaint. In the course of I-I members’ collective experiences with particular agencies and institutions, certain tactical patterns have emerged that are clearly designed to wear down, exhaust and intimidate the citizen, and thereby suppress the truth and frustrate justice."?
