Our national security should always come first

A situation has arisen, whereby a “foreign national”, considered to be a “security threat” to this State and its inhabitants can avail of our legal system to remain in this country.

Members of the legal profession cannot be held responsible/accountable for actions taken by them in the courts — yet the people of Ireland could suffer death or injury as the direct result of legal actions/decisions.

This is hardly reflective of a “democracy” when the welfare/wellbeing of one individual is put ahead of national security.
