HC Deb 16 June 1890 vol 345 c1036
MR. P. J. O'BRIEN (Monaghan, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in the Report furnished to him in the case of charges of forgery and fraud made by John Maher, of Lorrha, against Sergeant Lord, of that station, the fact is stated that some time after Maher had made his com plaint to the Inspector General of Constabulary he was waited on by Mr. Doolan, J.P., with an offer of the money that Lord had previously refused to pay him; and whether, in view of this pre sumptive evidence that the amount claimed was due, and that Sergeant Lord was guilty of fraud on the Police Authorities by returning as a voucher a forged receipt for the money that had not been paid, the Government will direct the Attorney General to consider the case with a view to the vindication of justice?


The Police Authorities are making inquiry into this matter.
