175. Deputy Finian McGrath asked the Minister for Justice and Equality her views on the case of a person (details supplied); and if she will make a statement on the matter. [25411/15]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): The Deputy will appreciate that I have no role in the conduct of criminal investigations or the initiation of prosecutions, which are matters for An Garda Síochána and the Director of Public Prosecutions respectively. In these circumstances it would not be appropriate for me to make any comment on the case referred to.
