Question

161. Deputy Jackie Cahill asked the Minister for Justice and Equality if the investigation into the deaths of persons (details supplied) will be reopened in order to investigate matters; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [40717/18]

Answer

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Charles Flanagan): The Deputy will appreciate that the manner in which Garda investigations are carried out, including any decision made to reopen a particular case, is solely a matter for the Garda Commissioner and his management team and I, as Minister, have no role in such matters.
However, to be of assistance to the Deputy, I have made arrangements for his concerns to be brought to the attention of the Garda authorities for their attention and whatever action is deemed necessary.
