"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."
