McCabe's Counsel Asks Whether Anyone Would Blow The Whislte If They Knew What Could Happen.

: 03/08/2018 - 16:54

Counsel for Maurice McCabe has asked whether anyone would blow the whistle if they knew the blizzard they were about to walk into.

Michael McDowell has suggested to the Disclosures Tribunal that the Garda whistleblower’s treatment at the O’Higgins Inquiry would not have been countenanced if it were held in public.

The Tribunal is hearing submissions on whether unjustified grounds were inappropriately relied on by former Garda Commissioner Noirin O’Sullivan to discredit Maurice McCabe at the O’Higgins Inquiry.

Mr McDowell says Noirin O’Sullivan must be held responsible for her lawyers’ actions at the Inquiry, where the motivation and credibility of Sgt McCabe were called into question.
