Gardai: Waiting for political instructions on the Callely case

On the 4th of August last Paul Gogarty TD went to his local Garda station and requested that an investigation be launched into Senator Callely’s expense claims.

Over three weeks on and we’re still waiting for the Gardai to begin an investigation.

Here’s what’s happening.

The Gardai are delaying any investigation in the hope that the matter will be resolved politically.

The politicians are desperately trying to get rid of Callely before he further exposes just how corrupt the expenses system really is.

The Gardai will take no further action until they receive instructions from their political masters.

This is how things are done in a banana republic.
