Who says what about McCabe co-operation

Did garda whistleblower Seamus McCabe co-operate with investigation into the scrapping of penalty points?

Alan Shatter says he didn't. On foot of the completion of the penalty points affair by Assistant Garda Commissioner John O'Mahony, Mr Shatter said in the Dail the garda whistleblower had not co-operated with the inquiry. Micheal Martin says he wasn't asked to. After talking with the whistleblower, Mr Martin says Sergeant McCabe was not interviewed by the assistant commissioner and Mr Shatter needs to correct the record. Pat Rabbitte says he doesn't know. As the accusations of misleading the Dail grow, Mr Rabbitte said he was sure Mr Shatter would "correct the record" if he was wrong and he "may have been mistaken".
