397. Deputy Thomas P. Broughan asked the Minister for Justice and Equality if she will report to Dáil Éireann on the current situation with regard to investigations by An Garda Síochána and the Director of Public Prosecutions into the findings of the Moriarty tribunal. [49615/14]

Answer

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): I propose to take Questions Nos. 396 and 397 together.
As the Deputy will recall, I am informed that, following the examination by An Garda Síochána of the report of the Moriarty Tribunal, the advice of the Director of Public Prosecutions was sought with a view to determining whether or not a full Garda investigation should be commenced. I am also informed that the Garda authorities have also been engaged in an examination of the Report of the Mahon Tribunal, which was referred to the Garda Commissioner by the Government .
I have request an updated report from the Garda authorities in relation to their consideration of both of these matters and I will contact the Deputy directly as soon as the report is to hand.
