#AceWorldNews – IRELAND – March 25 – The Irish government has set up an investigation into allegations of widespread phone wire-tapping by its police force.
The government said that they had received new information Tuesday that was so serious that a commission had to be set up.
“A system was in place in a large number of Garda (police) stations whereby incoming and outgoing telephone calls were taped,” it said.
The statement said that the practice had been in place for many years and was discontinued in November 2013.
