Garda loses High Court challenge to dismissal - Independent.ie
Another shocking case where a garda was dismissed following his false statement about inspecting a licensed premises in Drumshambo, Co. Leitrim in order to prosecute. Only crumb of comfort is that garda authorities saw through it and pursued it.
But how many other cases like this went unchecked ?
This comes at a bad time for the garda - they were picketing Dublin Castle yesterday, and in a week that a garda enquiry found that there was no corruption in the squashing of penalty points for certain well known people - because the garda were not paid for so doing !
