Journalists over-rely on official sources, conference hears

Journalists over-rely on official sources, conference hears,“When the allegations were first aired we saw many of the political and security correspondents saying there was no story here, that the whistleblowers had an axe to grind.

Review of prison system fails to tackle endemic problems

Review of prison system fails to tackle endemic problems,In relation to this recent report, Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald said: “In the past, we have had plenty of reports but not enough implementation. I will not let this be the case with the Penal Policy Review”. Referring to the ignored Whitaker report of 30 years ago, she said there now exists “the deep-rooted determination and political will to make change happen in penal policy”. Unfortunately, the Strategic Review of Penal Policy fails to address many of the deep-seated problems in Ireland’s prisons, and in many instances fails to even acknowledge them.?

CRONYISM | Oconnellpadd13's Blog,ENCOURAGECHANGE.: Lijit paddoconnell: “‘Basically i find it obnoxious that in this life cronyism comes before qualifications,Plus the fact that your class background defines what position you may be granted in life by the so-called elites.’?THE GREY-HAIRED MEN?”
“”It appears that the standard strategy for dealing with complaints – especially when they concern important or ‘connected persons’ is to target the complainant regardless of the complainant’s personal integrity – or of the legitimacy of their complaint. In the course of I-I members’ collective experiences with particular agencies and institutions, certain tactical patterns have emerged that are clearly designed to wear down, exhaust and intimidate the citizen, and thereby suppress the truth and frustrate justice.”?” – See more at: http://paddoconnell.blogspot.com

Fr Molloy and Freedom of Information Act. A request by the family for information from the Department of Justice has come back after two months with information only relevant to the years 2010 -2014.We had naturally requested information going back to the time of Niall’s murder in 1985. No explanation has been given for excluding the previous 25 years. We are now in the position where we have to lodge an appeal to obtain information which is our legal right to have under the Freedom of Information Act. We have made similar requests to other relevant Government Departments and they have all responded with information dating back to 1985 and even earlier.Why is the Department of Justice holding back ?
