Question

115. Deputy Clare Daly asked the Minister for Justice and Equality the reason a case mentioned in Dáil Éireann on 5 February 2015 in relation to allegations that two gardaí in County Galway were involved in embezzling funds for a property deal in Romania, which was first brought to the attention of An Garda Síochána in August 2011 but with no follow-up, has now been referred to Europol; the reason it is not being investigated here in view of the fact that this is where the money changed hands and where the gardaí were working, allegedly using Garda resources during their financial dealings; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [22722/15]

Answer

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): I have sought a report from the Garda Commissioner on the matters referred to by the Deputy and will communicate further when this is to hand.
