This was entirely false, and the tribunal is examining whether such allegations were generated in an attempt to smear Sgt McCabe. In response to questioning, Mr Martin said he did not tell anybody else what Mr McGuinness had revealed. Mr Rabbitte said the driver warned him about Sgt McCabe after he had praised the Garda sergeant on the radio. Mr Rabbitte also said that further verification could be sought from his private secretary at the time, whom he told about the remarks. Mr Kennedy is put out that Mr Rabbitte would say what he had said.
