Anthony Kelly claims his mother was denied treatment in custody - Limerick Leader: The man, who spoke to the Pat Kenny Show on Newstalk on condition of anonymity, claimed his son, who was then 16, had been “beaten to a pulp” after being arrested for driving with no insurance.
“They [gardai] pulled his pants down and beat him with his belt. They took his gold chain off his neck and shoved it into his mouth. They stood on his neck and doing that damaged his spine,” the father alleged.
He also claimed that paperwork relating to a complaint made by the family relating to his treatment had been lost in the transition from the Garda Complaints Board to the Garda Siochana Ombudsman Office.?
