Up to one thousand Gardaí could be investigated over the recent breath test controversy.

Today’s Sunday Independent says an investigation is on the cards after a report found that 1.5 million fake tests were recorded.

The Justice Minister has referred to the scandal as a “very dark chapter” in the history of the Gardaí.

Charlie Flanagan says he will have a zero tolerance approach to Gardaí who knowingly submitted false tests, and has not ruled out the possibility of dismissals.
