Alan Shatter’s comments in the Dail today were NOT about Judge Frank Roe’s behaviour in the 1986 trial in the death of Niall Molloy. He was lashing out against SC Sean Guerin.
“These principles are crucial to the rule of law and ignoring them places in peril a value system crucial to the wellbeing of all our citizens and all who reside in the State.’’
Mr Shatter was speaking in the Dail this afternoon during a debate on the Cooke report into claims of unlawful surveillance of the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission.”
It would have been interesting, when he was Minister, to have heard his view on how the 1986 trial was conducted. But then we will not know his views as he refused to meet with members of the Molloy family once he was elected to government.
