Whistleblower McCabe says hundreds of offences changed or falsified

A Garda whistleblower claims that hundreds of records of criminal offences were changed, erased, or falsified after being brought to the attention of senior management.

An Irish Examiner report by Michael Clifford says this latest allegation by Sergeant Maurice McCabe will be referred for further investigation in a review being carried out by by barrister Sean Guerin for the Government.

Sgt McCabe says the records show how offences were detected but never followed up on.

It is claimed documents were sent back from Garda headquarters to the Cavan/Monaghan division and the falsification took place sometime later.

Sergeant McCabe has also claimed that in Baileborough station where he worked in Co Cavan, up to 40 offences a month were ignored.
