Question

313. Deputy Brendan Griffin asked the Minister for Justice and Equality if a copy of a statement given to An Garda Síochána by a person (details supplied) will be made available to that person; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [40066/15]

Answer

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): The person to whom the Deputy refers is amongst those whose complaint was considered under the mechanism established for the independent review of certain allegations of Garda misconduct, or inadequacies in the investigation of certain allegations, which have been made to me as Minister for Justice and Equality, or the Taoiseach, or other public representatives with a view to determining to what extent and in what manner further action may be required in each case.
I can inform the Deputy that a letter notifying this person of the outcome of the review into her case has been issued. The person has been informed, amongst other things, of the position of any witness making a statement to An Garda Síochána who subsequently requests a copy of such a statement. Beyond that, I have, as Minister, no function in relation to the matter raised by the Deputy.
