Having waited unsuccessfully for over twelve months for a meeting the Former Minister for Justice Alan Shatter TD with only a few short weeks into her appointment as Minister for Justice and Equality Minister Frances Fitzgerald today met with AGSI.
General Secretary John Redmond and members of the National Executive had a meeting with the Minister which lasted over one and half hours which would be one of the longest meetings we ever had with a Minister for Justice.
The AGSI delegation comprising of President Tim Galvin, General Secretary John Redmond, Vice-President Larry Brady, Mary Finnegan, Cormac Moylan and Christy Morrison raised a number of major issues with the Minister under the following headings.
The four main heading that were discussed were:
3. Guerin Report
4. EU Decision 83/2012
5. Review of An Garda Siochana
The Minister was anxious to get a clear understanding of the issues and while time was limited and there was much to discuss she agreed to meet with AGSI again before the budget in October.
