Tribunal into allegations of garda� collusion begins in Dublin

While the wrangling over the terms of the inquiries recommended by retired Canadian Judge, Peter Cory, continues here, another of his recommended inquiries opened in Dublin today as a tribunal began into the murders of Chief Superintendent Harry Breen and Superintendent Robert Buchanan, ambushed and killed by members of the Provisional IRA as they returned north after an informal meeting with senior garda� in Dundalk on 20 March, 1989. As the RT� report notes, “The tribunal is investigating the possibility that a member of the garda� informed the IRA of the route the men had planned to take on that day back in 1989.”
