Tribunal sharply rejects Garda whistleblower Keith Harrison’s claims

first_imgAll claims made by Garda whistleblower Keith Harrison and his partner Marisa Simms have been rejected by the Charleton Tribunal.The final 97-page report published yesterday cast off allegations that the Donegal Garda and Ms Simms were the victims of a malicious campaign by gardai and child and family agency Tusla that interfered in their family life.Garda Harrison and Ms Simms were said to have made ‘extremely serious allegations’ about social workers and gardai, claiming that they were subjected to a series of illegal and corrupt events because of Harrison’s status as a whistleblower. Harrison alleged that a five-year harassment campaign began after he arrested a colleague in Athlone for drink driving in 2009.Mr Justice Charleton’s damning report declared some of Harrison’s claims as ‘nonsense’ and ‘completely unfounded’.The report concluded: “All of the allegations of Garda Keith Harrison and Marisa Simms examined by the tribunal are entirely without any validity. They have claimed to have been victims of a malicious procession of events. That is not so.“They claimed to have been the victims of others. There is another side to this. “The allegations which they made must have taken a considerable emotional toll on several of the multiple persons accused by them of very serious misconduct.“It is appropriate here to exonerate everyone in social services and in policing accused by them of discreditable conduct. That is the only possible conclusion to the tribunal’s enquiry.”Tribunal sharply rejects Garda whistleblower Keith Harrison’s claims was last modified: December 2nd, 2017 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:allegationsclaimsdonegalGarda Keith Harrisontribunalwhisteblowerlast_img read more
