Garda Commissioner Drew Harris must explain his “most unusual” decision to be escorted from the North to Garda headquarters in Dublin by PSNI officers, a former chief supt has said.
John O’Brien, retired detective chief supt and former national head of Interpol and Europol, said the incident, which resulted in a security alert, raises questions about the commissioner’s judgment.
