I'm just listening to the news and now JDuffy is on about sanctions Shatter has taken against the 4 Gardai who walked out on him and the comissioner. What type of sanctions can be lent against them for complaining? Are they not allowed? Is this justified by both sides and where is the respect that is being eroded going to lead us?.
RTE NEWS: Minister for Justice Alan Shatter has sanctioned disciplinary action to be taken against four garda sergeants who twice walked out of their association's annual conference this week. The four staged walk outs before the minister's address and Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan's address to the meeting of ASGI. The four are due to appear before an assistant commissioner later this week and a disciplinary board is expected to be set up. They could face a range of sanctions including fines, suspension and a reduction in rank.
