    Default Sec. General of Department of Justice implicated in Equality Authority Leak

    Front page of todays Irish Times.

    Looks like the funding slash episode is getting down and VERY dirty.

    It seems bizarre, to say the least, that the prison service refuses to tell an employee under what terms and conditions he is being employed.


    This one will run and run.

    Yes, but the issue is the now Sec Gen allegedly giving information to the Priests bishop during an investigation where there is a legal impediment to so doing. Very damaging if true.

    This whole thing gives credence to the allegation that there is something more than budgetary concerns over the spangling of the EA.

    I am not a fan of the Irish Times at all, but I applaud them for raising this.

    I'm in two minds about this. The Dept. was clearly wrong in how they treated the Chaplin but this article looks very much like the Equality Authority, or someone sympathetic to it, is releasing dirt into the press to take revenge on the Dept.

    It undoubtedly is for that reason all right but, the issue is, if it is correct then possibly the Department had an ulterior motive for shafting the Authority. Revenge for dobbing in the Sec Gen to the Gardai.

    While many suspected that may be the case at the begining, it now seems more and more likley that that is the case.

    This kind of thing is a classic aftermath effect of political infighting. What will be interesting now will be the response. However the dangerous thing would be to come down on one side or the other without any hard evidence being produced.

    No, your right. Its a wait and see. Someone in the establishment is not taking it lying down though. That information could only have come from official sources within the public service. Methink Justice might have overstepped the mark on this one.

    I notice that all the gentlepersons who were so vociferous in criticising the Equality Authority in recent days are conspicuously quiet now.

    Perhaps it is because there is now some substance to various posters allegations that the Authority was victimised by the Department.
