(figured I'd start a new thread rather then resurrect the old one)
Just out this afternoon
My own view is that the man should be personally liable to a claim by the state and McCabe for this. Disgusting!
Took far too long to get to this point. It will probably take far too long for him to see justice.
Report also found the campaign was between Callinan and Taylor. No evidence O'Sullivan had any involvement.
Has the report made mention of Noirin's missing phones/ SIM cards?
This kind of thing should warrant criminal charges IMO, not merely on the basis of false accusations but also the fact that they were made in the interests of covering up a scandal. It should be a criminal offence to intentionally engage in a cover-up of any kind in the interests of deflecting legitimate allegations of wrongdoing.
Of course it'll never happen given that the people most likely to engage in such cover ups would have to vote for laws against it It'd be nice if it did, though.
they absolutely had to get an outsider in to run the show, upper echelons seem to have been rotten
Good job them phones were made non retrievable.
I wasn't really expecting certain posters to accept the findings unless they agreed with their pre-existing conclusions.
So the missing phones and sim cards cause you zero concern?
The phones are mentioned in the report.
Can McCabe expect a 'thank you' card from yourself in the coming days?
Charleton's conclusions on the phones issue:
Pretty much. Their location should be known but I put that down to incompetence.
I'll sign yours if you want.
Its quite reminiscent of the Paul Murphy false imprisonment case.
It says that the idea the phones contained incriminating evidence was put about by Taylor and his creation. It doesn't settle it in regard to the phones going missing at all. We'll never know what was on all those phones either way.
Is there more detail on the Tulsa err?
