THE TERMS OF reference for the Commission of Inquiry into the taping of calls in and out of garda stations are expected to be decided on tomorrow.
Minister of State Paschal Donohoe said today on RTÉ Morning Ireland that he anticipates the terms will be discussed during tomorrow’s Cabinet meeting.
He said that he wants an answer to the many questions surrounding GardaGate, such as why the former Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan resigned, and why the Taoiseach sent Brian Purcell, the secretary of the Department of Justice, to talk to Callinan.
“I do [want an answer] and the Government does as well,” he said.
Donohoe added that he expects these issues to be included within the terms of reference.
The issue “goes to the very heart of the role of gardaí with in our country”, said Donohoe of GardaGate.
The inquiry is being led by Mr Justice Nial Fennelly.
