Whistleblower McCabe To Meet Senior Gardaí As Penalty Points Saga Rears Its Head Once More

Senior gardaí are set to meet with whistleblower, Sergeant Maurice McCabe, today following claims that there has been more penalty point corruption within the gardaí.

Following new allegations, senior members are now investigating further claims that relate to off-duty gardaí claiming that they were driving garda vehicles at the time that offences were detected.

It is alleged that penalty points have been cancelled on numerous occasions and that McCabe is also claiming that points are once more being scrapped for family and friends of the gardaí.

This follows a number of changes that were introduced in June in order to tackle the issue and prevent this happening again.

These new allegations have been sent to the Garda Ombudsman Commission by Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald.

The meeting is due to take place later today at Garda Headquarters with further investigation to be carried out by the Garda Professional Standards Unit.
