Update on George Gibney Criminal Investigation in Ireland

While the U.S. Congress and news media sleep, the case with the most current promise for tying the global youth swimming sexual abuse problem across national boundaries proceeds both in an American court and in the Irish criminal system.

I have a pending action in federal court challenging the failure of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to release with fewer redactions the visa and green card files of former Irish Olympic swim team head coach George Gibney, who has been living in this country for 20 years. In its inadequate response to my Freedom of Information Act request, the government already acknowledges that they total 102 pages and include law enforcement records.

Meanwhile, the efforts of Maureen O’Sullivan, a Teachta Dála (member of the Dáil Éireann, the lower house of the Oireachtas, or Irish Parliament), who represents a district in Dublin, told Concussion Inc. that she has met for a second time with the detective superintendent of the national police who was assigned, at O’Sullivan’s request, to revisit dormant investigations of rape and molestation charges against Gibney. O’Sullivan wants the government to reconsider cases that were dropped on technical grounds due to what she has termed “a litany of mistakes,” and to seek Gibney’s extradition from the U.S. to face charges.

“I am assured that the investigation is thorough and painstaking,” TD O’Sullivan said in reference to a recent meeting with prosecutorial authorities, her second in this matter. “I hope to have a further meeting late August or early September.”
