52. To ask the Minister for Justice and Equality if he will accede to the request by the family of Fr. Niall Molloy for an independent inquiry into the priest’s violent death; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [39605/13]
Alan Shatter (Minister, Department of Justice, Equality and Defence; Dublin South, Fine Gael) | 
The Deputy will be aware that this case was examined by the Garda Síochána Serious Crime Review team, who forwarded a report to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP). The DPP subsequently advised that, on the basis of the papers provided, there be no further prosecution in this matter. In the circumstances, I have only recently received a detailed report from the Garda Commissioner on the investigation, which I am currently studying in the context of considering any further steps which might be appropriate in relation to this matter.
