Question

300. Deputy Finian McGrath asked the Minister for Justice and Equality if she will provide an update on a case (details supplied) and the proposed inquiry; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [3522/15]

Answer

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): I met with family members of the victim in the case to which the Deputy refers and their legal representative to hear directly from them of their concerns surrounding the case and their call for an inquiry. The Deputy will be aware that this tragic case of murder was one which was inquired into previously by the late Judge Henry Barron. I am currently finalising a review of material which was provided to me subsequently by the family's legal representative and related material to do with this case. I anticipate that process will be concluded shortly and when it is concluded I will communicate directly with the family.
