MORE than five times as many people think that the Garda Siochana Ombudsman Commission (GSOC) was justified in launching a public interest inquiry about bugging than think that GSOC was not.

That shows strong backing for GSOC, which is now the subject of an inquiry launched by the Government into possible bugging at GSOC’s offices and into GSOC’s reaction to that threat.

The proportion of Fine Gael supporters (71 per cent) who think that GSOC was right is even higher than the national average (66 per cent).
