Intimidated and Threatened for Telling the Truth.
Sergeant Maurice McCabe found his life turned upside down when he reported systemic abuse of the Garda traffic records. The abuse was costing the taxpayer an estimated €1.5 million a year and undermining Ireland's road safety programme.
Transparency's Speak Up team provided Maurice and his colleague John Wilson with guidance and support in dealing with the harassment they faced, and publicly campaigned to see them treated fairly. Transparency continued to advise the Government on new whistleblower legislation during the case to ensure that people like Maurice, wherever they work, are able to tell the truth without suffering the consequences. The Transparency Legal Advice Centre (TLAC)* has provided free legal advice to whistleblowers valued at over €1,000,000 to date.
We provide the only independent service in Ireland to people like Maurice so they can speak up safely about corruption and abuse of public resources. You can help us help them by donating to TLAC* and Transparency International Ireland** today. Your generosity will not only help support whistleblowers but help bring an end to the abuse, corruption and bad governance that has blighted our country for decades.
Join Friends of Transparency today by making a monthly contribution to this work.
