Solicitors can now attend Garda interviews with detainees – a legal news update from Kilkenny based solicitor firm of Holland Condon

May 9, 2014

On 8th May, 2014, The Department of Justice and Equality informed the Law Society that the Director of Public Prosecutions has very recently issued a direction to the Garda Síochána about the attendance of solicitors during interviews in garda stations. As a result of this direction, where a request is made by a suspect who is detained in a garda station to have his or her solicitor present during an interview, a solicitor will be allowed to attend.

clearly, criminal defence solicitors will face new challenges in light of this welcome and overdue improvement of the rights of detained persons.
