Forces of law and order waiting for permission

I see Joe Burke, chairman of Dublin Port Company and close friend of Bertie Ahern, is to resume work next week despite being deemed too ill to be questioned by Gardai in a sexual assault investigation (Irish Independent).

Burke has already resumed a full social life but Gardai are still waiting ‘for permission’ from Burke’s medical team before inconveniencing this important man.

It’s reasonable to assume from this timid and respectful approach by the forces of law and order that if Burke’s medical team decides that he can never be questioned then the Gardai will meekly accept that decision.
