One of the women at the centre of the Garda tape controversy has called for a full public inquiry.

 

Jerrie Ann O' Sullivan, a postgraduate student, said the experience had been deeply traumatic. She says she's been forced to go public today because Gardaí have leaked the identities of the two women involved in the tape scandal.

 

She was one of two women arrested at the Corrib Gas site in Co Mayo last Thursday.

 

Gardaí were later recorded apparently making jokes about raping and deporting one of the women.

 

Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan has received a preliminary report into the incident, and the Garda Ombudsman Commission currently has a team of investigators in Co Mayo.

 

The Shell to Sea group is now calling for an independent international inquiry into the policing of the Corrib gas protests.
