The final report on the events that led to the retirement of former Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan is close to completion and is expected to be delivered to witnesses next week.

The Fennelly Commission is set to determine whether Mr Callinan was forced from his position as a result of Cabinet concern over the garda tapes controversy.

The report will be sent to a number of key witnesses, including Mr Callinan, former Justice Minister Alan Shatter, former Secretary General of the Department of Justice Brian Purcell and Taoiseach Enda Kenny.

A spokeswoman for the Taoiseach tonight said the release of the report is a matter for the Commission, which is headed by Nial Fennelly.
