Luke ‘Ming’ Flanagan was escorting a Garda whistleblower to GSOC offices today when he became aware of an undercover Garda car tailing them.
Stopping at a café opposite GSOC on Abbey St in Dublin’s northside inner city, the TD’s companion noticed the Garda car watching them. He went to see what was going on and when he walked down the street the car followed him. A source told rabble that Flanagan videoed the Gardaí on his phone.
Flanagan and former Garda John Wilson were attending GSOC to inform them of a serious allegation of corruption within the Garda drug squad that has been brought to Flanagan’s attention in the last week. The serving Garda that is blowing the whistle is said to be ‘terrified’ and Flanagan says today’s events left him ‘quivering’ (via thejournal.ie).
‘Ming’ brought up the incident in Leaders’ Questions in the Dáil but accused Enda Kenny of making a joke of his claims when Kenny replied ‘Maybe they thought there was somebody dealing’.
”You are a disgrace.” he told Kenny.
