Book of Evidence contradicts important witness statement

In the opening pages of the Book of Evidence a key witness who was present in Kilcoursey house is dismissed as not important because he was not in the house at a certain time that evening.

This comment made by a senior Garda Completely contradicts the witness’s own signed statement which is included later on in the report.

 

No one has picked up on this despite it having been examined again by Gardai, the DPP’s office, Dept.of Justice experts and Journalists who have reviewed the case.
