Time will tell

The very first public utterance by the new Garda Ombudsman Commission was to put the general public on notice that malicious or vexatious complaints against the Gardai would be dealt with severely.

The commission Ombudsman, Carmel Foley, was reassuring Gardai that they would be well protected by her organisation.

Apparently, the Commission was set up to investigate complaints and allegations of misbehaviour against the Gardai.

Time will tell.
