The solicitor for a civilian Garda employee who was the subject of a criminal investigation over the production of sick notes at work has called for a “full and impartial” inquiry. The trial of Lynn Margiotta and her brother, Tony Margiotta, at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court collapsed last month after a judge ruled her rights have been abused. The prosecution case was that Dr Margiotta had provided his sister with medical certs to say she was not fit for work. Ms Margiotta was first arrested in August 2014; the case took four and a half years to reach trial. Three weeks before her arrest, she had made a complaint of bullying against a Garda member.
