Rate-Your-Solicitor.com Forum / The Judge, The Lawyer and The DPP

Rate-Your-Solicitor.com Forum / The Judge, The Lawyer and The DPP: "The late Veronica Guerin published a series of articles some years later in which she disclosed the fact that Roe personally knew the parties involved and the Judge had written letters to the DPP concerning the case. The first hand-written letter was written by Roe to Eamon Barnes, Director of Public Prosecutions before any charges had been brought. In the letter Roe stated that he knew both Fr. Molloy and the Flynns.

This act in itself is grounds for the resignation of a Judge and the DPP should not have allowed his interference.

The second letter written after the trial is his explanation (Roe's) for his dismissal of the charges.

Veronica based her articles on information she had obtained from reading a copy of the DPP file on my uncle's case which had been stolen from the DPP's office and was being held in a Solicitor's office in Dublin.

Roe when contacted by Veronica said, 'They were lovely people all of them. God bless them all.
