Gardaí sue over ‘Kafkaesque’ new rules for suspects in custody

Gardaí are taking legal action to prevent the introduction of “Kafkaesque” rules on keeping suspects in custody.

They have complained that they face harsher disciplinary proceedings for failing to implement the rules without having been given any training on how to do so.

It is understood that it wants to halt the rollout of the new directive for dealing with suspects in custody until adequate training is provided.
