Government must proceed with commission of investigation into handling of Bill Kenneally case – David Cullinane TD Sinn Féin

TD for Waterford David Cullinane has urged the Minister for Justice Charlie Flanagan to proceed with a commission of investigation into the handling of the Bill Kenneally case by several state agencies.

Deputy Cullinane recently met with a number of victims and was presented with a dossier alleging process failures by members of An Garda Síochána and the HSE.

Speaking today, Deputy Cullinane said:

"The victims of Bill Keneally deserve justice. A number of victims have made claims alleging that several state agencies failed in their duty of care to citizens. These allegations are of the utmost seriousness.

"These claims need to be fully and thoroughly examined. The Government has previously committed to a commission of investigation.

"The Minister for Justice is citing legal reasons for the delay in setting up this commission. These reasons have been comprehensively dismissed and rebutted by the victims’ legal team.

"There is no credible reason why this commission should not proceed."
