Justice Minister Alan Shatter and Mick Wallace were on Prime Time last night to talk about the penalty points report and the appearance of Commissioner Martin Callinan at a Public Accounts Committee meeting earlier that day.
During the chat, Mr Shatter accused Mr Wallace of having been stopped by the Gardaí last May.
He said – with the authority of someone who may have actually seen a file on the subject – that Mr Wallace was on his phone while driving.
Now apart from him putting a rivals personal record in the public domain, is it not wrong for the minister to know specific cases? Is this a breach of data protection? and what sort of access has the minister to citizens personal information?
