Garda SÃochÃ¡na Bill 2004...: 14 Apr 2005: Dáil debates (KildareStreet.com)
Garda SÃochÃ¡na Bill 2004...: 14 Apr 2005: Dáil debates (KildareStreet.com)I welcome the proposed replacement of the Garda SÃochÃ¡na Complaints Board by the independent Garda Ombudsman Commission. Citizens have complained about the length of time it takes to deal with complaints. In one case a complaint was made to the Garda SÃochÃ¡na Complaints Board by Mr. Kevin Tracey, 11 Park Lane, Chapelizod, Dublin 20. He called to my clinic and that of the Minister and effectively asked for a complaint he had made to the board to be dealt with and reported. He made that complaint approximately two or three years ago. I have a file containing quite serious allegations which he has made. It is disappointing that the board did not report on his complaint. It is unfair that no report is available on serious allegations made. In the case of Mr. Traceyâ€™s complaint, the new Garda Ombudsman Commission would have the resources and the structures to deal with it in an efficient manner?
