59. Mr. Bradford asked the Minister for Justice if she will give details of the investigations carried out by her Department following a complaint by a person (details supplied) in County Cork concerning the failure to progress a case where the complainant claims to have suffered a physical assault and where medical evidence is available to support this assertion.
Minister for Justice (Mrs. Geoghegan-Quinn) Máire Geoghegan-Quinn
Minister for Justice (Mrs. Geoghegan-Quinn): It is not the practice for the Minister for Justice to give detailed information to the House about individual Garda investigations except in singular instances where the circumstances are so exceptional that such a course is deemed to be appropriate.
All I propose to say in this case is that I have been informed by the Garda authorities that this matter was the subject of a full Garda investigation, but no evidence is available to the gardaí to initiate a prosecution against any person.
