Minister for Justice (Mrs. Owen): I am informed by the Garda authorities that the prosecuting Garda did not appear in court on the day in question because he had incorrectly noted the date of the hearing. I am also informed that the file in the matter is currently with the Director of Public Prosecutions to see whether the charges can be reentered.
