As the Deputy will appreciate, very sensitive matters arise in dealing with the issue raised.

It would not be appropriate for me to comment on the details of any individual case or the arrangements that may be in place, for reasons of security and the personal safety of individuals.

I can confirm that officials in my Department have been in contact with the Garda authorities in relation to this matter.

My Department will be in contact with the Deputy directly in relation to the matter.
