ICCL to address Oireachtas Justice Committee on Garda Reform

**Read our submission to the Committee via the reader above or at the link below.**

Tomorrow morning, Wednesday 14 May 2014, the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality will conduct oral hearings as part of its review the effectiveness of legislation relating to the oversight of the Garda Síochána (the Garda Act 2005). 

The ICCL will address the committee during the hearings’ morning session, during which it will outline its views on a number of gaps in the oversight of policing in Ireland, which were not adequately addressed by the Garda Act 2005, and which have been further brought to light by the recent series of Garda-related controversies. The ICCL will further outline some key measures required to ensure that Ireland’s police accountability and oversight structures are fit for purpose.

The ICCL’s address will draw upon its formal submission to the Committee in April of this year, as well asImplementing Morris, its major 2006 study on the aftermath of the Morris Tribunal, the recommendations of which remain unimplemented.
