Mick Wallace, independent TD, this afternoon lodged a complaint with the Data Protection Commissioner about the disclosure of information received by Minister for Justice, Alan Shatter, on RTEs Prime Time programme last week.
Mr Wallace will receive a formal decision if a breach of data protection legislation has taken place after the Office receives the Ministers comments. The Commissioners office said it was up to Mr Shatter to justify the basis and the justification for disclosing data that came into his possession as Minister for Justice. The Minister has said he received information about the Gardaí using their discretion regarding an incident involving Mr Wallace in the course of a briefing from the force.
Mr Wallace said he was using his mobile phone while driving in Dublin in 2012 and he has been pressing the Government over alleged improper quashing of penalty points
Expect plenty of clips on tonights show, and, of course, a good debate between Charlie and Padraig. Well worth watching Sparks should fly. :shock:
