Deputy Pearse Doherty reveals name of latest Garda whistleblower in the Dail

pearse DohertyDonegal South West Deputy Pearse Doherty has named Garda Keith Harrison as the latest whistleblower, during a Dáil debate on the Guerin Report.

He told the Dail that Garda Harrison was victimised after arresting a colleague who had been drink-driving.

He claimed he was office bound for a period of two years, while the officer he arrested with a high-level of alcohol in his system was still allowed access to garda cars and to hold a firearm.

Deputy Doherty said he has confidence in the gardaí, but where there is wrong it must be rooted out and whistleblowers must be protected.
