Independent Mayo TD Dr Jerry Cowley has raised concerns his telephone may be under Garda surveillance.
Dr Cowley, who has been associated with the Shell-to-Sea group raised his concerns in an interview published yesterday in the Connaught Telegraphnewspaper.
The Mayo TD said he suspected his telephone has been under Garda surveillance for a number of months along with figures within the Shell-to-Sea group.
Mr Cowley said he had formally raised the matter with Minister for Justice Michael McDowell but had been told that "it would be contrary to the public interest to comment on the existence or otherwise of covert Garda operational measures and associated details."
