  • All News Items- Speech by Frances Fitzgerald T.D., Minister for Justice and Equality at the launch of the Report of Ms Emily Logan under Section 42 of the Garda Síochána Act 2005 (as amended).
    report But it s more than that It is an opportunity to do something important To say sorry That s the first thing I wanted to do today To meet the two families who briefly lost their children and in private and in public apologise to them on behalf of the State The State is sorry We regret the pain that they went through It should not have happened It just should not It happened out of a determination to protect children but that determination got skewed The best of intentions played out in a distressing manner affecting two children and two families as highlighted in the report I am publishing today The best person to look at this unintended episode undoubtedly the best person was Emily Logan and she gives a comprehensive picture of the events which led to An Garda Síochána taking the actions they did She also makes important recommendations Every day Guard make hard decisions in real time They don t always have a full and perfect set of facts to work on Sometimes as in this case the context is influenced by global event in this instance the coverage of a case in Greece Occasionally they make the wrong call and what the Report has found is a succession of errors in how Gardaí dealt with these issues Gardaí acting in what they thought were the best interest of the children concerned made a series of mistakes With unintended consequences for two families That s what the Report found The Report however has found no evidence of ethnic profiling at an organisational level in An Garda Síochána The Report found no evidence that the Gardaí involved were motivated by conscious racism Indeed in relation to the Tallaght Case the Report highlights the Garda Officer s extensive community policing work and his voluntary engagement with minority communities It did find that members of An Garda Síochána who invoked section 12 of the 1991 Act had not been provided specific training related to the Roma community That must be addressed The Report did not find enough information sharing between State agencies Information held by State agencies if it had been made available to the members of An Garda Síochána at the time would have influenced what was done improved what was done The Report makes a number of recommendations in this regard and work on implementing them are already in train I accept the findings of the Report and its Recommendations My Department has already begun working with the relevant agencies such as An Garda Síochána the Department of Children and Youth Affairs the Child and Family Agency and the Department of Health to ensure their timely implementation Importantly the recommendations concerning the provision of support to the families concerned are already being addressed I welcome the specific work already underway by An Garda Síochána and the Child and Family Agency in agreeing new protocols on the use of Section 12 of the Child Care Act 1991

  • All News Items- Minister Lynch's speech to Private Members’ Motion re Tackling Racism and Promoting Diversity
    that are offensive or insensitive and to challenge such behaviour Let me now turn to some of the important issues raised by the motion Programme for Government The Programme for Government contains a commitment that this Government will promote policies which integrate minority ethnic groups in Ireland and which promote social inclusion equality diversity and the participation of immigrants in the economic social political and cultural life of their communities This is a commitment that the Government is and will continue to take forward A key initiative in that regard is the Cross Departmental review of Ireland s integration strategy which is being led by the Office for the Promotion of Migrant Integration of the Department of Justice and Equality That review building on work already underway across Government will provide the basis for a new and updated integration strategy It is important that the new integration strategy should be geared to present and expected future conditions and drive integration work forward at a local and national level thus responding to the needs of a very diverse Irish society A public consultation exercise has already resulted in approximately 80 submissions being received and a number of face to face meetings between officials and parties who have provided material for consideration will take place over the coming weeks and months Promoting intercultural awareness and combating racism and xenophobia will be an important element of the work of the Cross Departmental Group Proposals for better addressing the problem of racism are also among the many issues addressed in the submissions that have been made I am aware equally of the work underway in the Joint Committee on Justice Defence and Equality on integration multi culturalism and combating racism I look forward to its report on these issues so that it can feed into the work of the Cross Departmental Group Tackling Racism and Promoting Diversity I welcome the acknowledgment that when it comes to the issue of tackling racism effective action to tackle the problem cannot be taken by the State alone I also welcome the acknowledgement of the important work being done in this regard by the Garda Intercultural and Diversity Office GRIDO has responsibility for coordinating monitoring and advising on all aspects of policing Ireland s diverse communities and this Office monitors the reporting and recording of hate and racist crime on a continual basis GRIDO also supports the work of Garda Ethnic Liaison Officers who are in place throughout the country and works with minority communities at local level Garda Ethnic Liaison Officers work in partnership with minority groups and representative organisations to encourage tolerance respect and understanding and to help prevent hate and racist crime I would also point to the important role which will be given to the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission to support programmes of activities and projects for the promotion of migrants and other minorities and respect for diversity and cultural difference Legislative Framework The issue is raised in the motion of strengthening
