[9169/16]

111. Deputy Róisín Shortall asked the Minister for Justice and Equality to accede to a request by persons for a commission of inquiry into the disappearance of a person (details supplied); and if she will make a statement on the matter. [8854/16]

Answer

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): As I have set out in responses to previous parliamentary questions in relation to this case, the disappearance of the person in question remains the subject of an ongoing Garda investigation and I am advised that the Garda Review Team is endeavouring to advance the investigation and that all avenues of investigation are being pursued in this regard. In these circumstances, it would not be appropriate for me to comment further on the case, nor would the establishment of a parallel Commission of Investigation be warranted.
