A MOTORIST who appeared before last Tuesday's sitting of Wexford District Court on a speeding charge claimed there is a vendetta against him by Gardai.
Peter Barry of Ballybrack, Carroll's Cross, Kilmacthomas, Co. Waterford, was before the court after he was caught travelling at 93 km/h in a 60 km/h zone at Raheen, New Ross, by Garda Flanagan on April 27, 2012.
The defendant said he recalled he was told he was travelling at 73 km/h and said he remembered the Garda saying that even though he was not travelling excessively over the speed limit he would bring him to court over the matter.
The 38-year-old claimed it has been acknowledged by his legal team in Dublin and the Ombudsman that there is a vendetta against him by Gardai and he wanted to know who were the Sergeant in Charge and the Superintendent at the time he was charged with the offence.
He also wanted to know when the speed detector was last calibrated.
Judge Haughton adjourned the case until February 19 to allow such information become available.
