332. Deputy Michael McGrath asked the Minister for Justice and Equality the number and value of cases of completed investigations in the area of anti-money laundering in the past number of years; the current investigations under way; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [23497/19]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Charles Flanagan): The Deputy will appreciate that it is the Garda Síochána which is responsible for the instigation and management of criminal investigations and I, as Minister for Justice and Equality, have no role in relation to operational matters.
I have requested the relevant information from the Commissioner of an Garda Síochána and I will write to the Deputy directly when I receive it.
