Here we go again. Another twist in the du Plantier case. But let’s not rehash the awful murder; let’s go to the conflict at the heart of the case — between the Garda Síochána and the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

For a quarter century, we’ve had two opposing views of the evidence. Meanwhile, Ian Bailey’s life has been destroyed, and the du Plantier family’s hearts have been broken — their hopes for justice repeatedly raised and dashed.
