Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform (Mr. O'Donoghue): The Deputy will be aware that, on 5 May 1999, I initiated inquiries in relation to the listing of a court case which was heard in Castlerea District Court on 15 January this year.
I have made inquiries of the Garda authorities and I am informed that the Garda investigation in this matter is currently ongoing and is expected to be completed within the next week. I understand that the other inquiries in relation to this matter will be completed shortly.
It remains my intention to report back to the House on this matter as soon as I am in a position to do so.
