An extraordinary story revealed into today’s Irish Independent has thrown the Dept. of Justice into panic mode.
A whistleblowing Garda has exposed mass fraud of the penalty points system, documenting 50,000 cases which may have been deleted from the PULSE computer system.
‘Pillars of Society’ have had their points quashed include and in at least nine cases highlighted in the dossier, a motorist who had their points quashed went on to be involved in a fatal road-traffic accident.
“Among those who had their points dropped were several “pillars of society” including:
* At least two members of the judiciary.
* An international rugby player.
* An RTE television presenter.
* And a number of serving and former gardai.
It is unclear whether these people sought to have their points quashed or if a garda wrote them off on their own initiative.”
