Hundreds expected at anti-corruption meeting

Hundreds of people are expected to turn up in Dublin today for the launch of a national anti-corruption network.

Hundreds of people are expected to turn up in Dublin today for the launch of a national anti-corruption network.

The network is being led by Frank McBrearty Jnr, who received a €1.5m cash settlement from the state after attempts by gardaí to frame him for murder nine years ago.

He has said that he has been inundated with complaints from the public about corruption in the Gardai and other state agencies since he held a public meeting in his family’s pub in Raphoe.

Other speakers at the meeting will include the brother of Terence Wheelock, who died in September after being found hanging in a Dublin Garda Station, and Osgur Breatnach, who was wrongly imprisoned in connection with the 1976 Sallins Mail train robbery.

The network has called on people to bring their statements of complaint with them to the public meeting, which is due to begin in the Mansion House in at 1pm.
