Mr. M. Higgins asked the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform his views on the fact that a person (details supplied) is currently on a hunger strike on the basis that they wish to clear their name following suggestions, in the media and elsewhere, that they may have been part of a group seeking to invest abroad proceeds of a bank robbery; if it is possible to clarify if charges are expected to be made against the person involved; and, should this not be the case, if a statement stating same will be made.

Mr. McDowell Mr. McDowell
Mr. McDowell: I am informed by the Garda authorities that the Garda investigation into matters relating to the bank robbery in question remains ongoing. The issue of whether prosecutions will arise from the incident remains a matter for the Director of Public Prosecutions. In the circumstances, it would not be appropriate for me to make further comment at this time.
