Over-zealous Minister has disgraced his office - Mythen

Cllr Johnny Mythen has described last week's attack by Minister Alan Shatter on Wexford Deputy Mick Wallace as 'outrageous and personal'.  The Enniscorthy Sinn Féin rep said that the Minister had brought discredit to the office of Justice and Defence.

"The outrageous and personal attack by Minister Alan Shatter on  Mick Wallace was a total abuse of power by  an office holder.  The use of personal  privileged information to discredit someone for political gain is a total breach of the code of conduct  of office holders.(sec. 1.5)." 

"Not only is this a misuse of executive power but it is a sign of a weak and egotistical individual who uses the guise of "public interest" to hide his failure to deal with  the fixed charge notices issue."

"In my opinion this Minister has brought discredit to the office of Justice and Defence and has displayed and used his personal views for the sole purpose to discredit Mick Wallace.  This is a very serious breach of trust and is definitely not serving the public interest, indeed at this stage Minister Shatter should consider his own position.  If he truly feels an over-zealous urge to  protect  and serve the public interest then it might be best served with his resignation."
