Disclosures Tribunal: Maurice McCabe "Repulisively Denegrated".

: 10/11/2018 - 12:54

The Disclosures Tribunal has found that Sgt Maurice McCabe was "repulsively denigrated for being no more than a good citizen and police officer".

The tribunal, which is chaired by Justice Peter Charleton, has published its third interim report.

It follows hearings investigating whether there was a smear campaign orchestrated by Garda management against the Garda whistleblower.

The report strongly criticises former Garda Press Officer Dave Taylor for 'disgraceful behaviour', describing him as a witness "whose credibility was completely undermined by his own bitterness".

Peter Charleton also concluded that Superintendent Taylor completely understated his own involvement in a campaign of calumny against Maurice McCabe and that it was NOT the case that he acted under orders.
