Jim Mitchell

Question:

199 Mr. J. Mitchell asked the Minister for Justice if she will respond finally to correspondence from Deputy Jim Mitchell in respect of a case (details supplied); and if she will make a statement on the matter. [10691/97]

I understand from the Garda authorities that this parliamentary question refers to a case which has been ongoing since 1992 and is now before the courts with the latest hearing on 18 April 1997. Accordingly, it would be inappropriate for me to make a statement on the matter at this stage.
