TBH I fail to see what criminal offence there is to investigate even it were to be true. You could call it all kinds of things, but it hardly a criminal offence. If we all complained to the Gardai about our votes being 'bought' by promises or even money every public rep would be in jail. And of course nobody can prove how anyone actually voted.THE HIGH Court has been told that allegations by a man about the operation of an asylum seekers’ residence are the subject of a Garda investigation.
The allegations include a claim that the manager of Richmond Court Accommodation Centre in Longford, Fine Gael councillor James Keogh, had paid money and made promises to residents there in return for their votes in last year’s local elections.
