It has been known for some time now that three Gardaí, roundly discredited by the Morris Tribunal in recent weeks, were centrally involved in the flawed investigation into Eddie Fullerton's murder. One of them, Detective Garda Noel McMahon was branded corrupt and a liar by the Tribunal
There MUST be a fully independent inquiry into this matter immediately. Both Security force collusion in the murder and Garda inadequency in the subsequent investigation need to be examined. Mr. McDowell has already attempted to stifle this issue by refusing to allow the Morris Tribunal to deal with these allegations. But this matter cannot be allowed to rest there. The family of Eddie Fullerton deserve the same closure that the Morris tribunal afforded to the Barron family.
