Morris tribunal resumes today

The Morris Tribunal is back on, with the expected completion of the current module shortly.

The Morris tribunal resumes today after the summer recess, and over the next two weeks the “silver bullet” module is expected to be completed.

The garda at the centre of allegations of corruption, Det Sgt John White, will for the first time have the chance to give his evidence at the tribunal. He is denying all allegations against him.

Tomorrow, Det White is scheduled to appear in the witness box and is expected to give direct evidence and undergo cross-examination for at least five days.

The module concerns Bernard Conlon’s claim that in 1997 Det White asked him in Raphoe, Co Donegal, to be found drinking after hours on the premises of Frankie’s nightclub, owned by the McBrearty family.
