108. Deputy Bobby Aylward asked the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality if she will clarify the legislation governing the release of results from a Director of Public Prosecutions investigation to a person (details supplied) who was the subject of an investigation; if the findings can be released to this person directly; the procedure for procuring same; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [14402/17]

Answer

Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions is a statutorily independent body operating under the aegis of the Department of the Taoiseach. The Deputy will appreciate that as I have no Ministerial responsibility in relation to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions it is not possible for me to provide the information sought.
