Information Session on the Spent Convictions Bill and Garda Vetting Act

Date: Wednesday 11th June 2014

Time: 11am-1pm

Venue: St Agatha’s Hall, Dunne Street, Dublin 1

This session will focus on two important and related legislative developments - the Criminal Justice (Spent Convictions) Bill 2012 and the National Vetting Bureau (Children and Vulnerable Persons) Act 2012 - and seek to address outstanding legal issues with regard to both pieces of legislation and how both systems will work in practice.

Topics include:

· the legislative process around spent convictions

· child protection, vetting procedures and supporting rehabilitation;

· impact of minor offences such as drunk and disorderly or offences committed 2 or 3 decades ago

· barriers to work, training and emigration as a result of convictions

Speakers will be experts in this field and include practising solicitors, barristers and advocates.

The HSE have issued two Public Health alerts in relation to Ecstasy like substances that have been linked to a number of deaths across Ireland.
While investigations are still ongoing, there is sufficient evidence available to recommend that people do not take these substances or if their friends are in possession of these that they should not be consumed.

Green Apple / Green Rolex & other stimulants:
Green pills with an Apple or Rolex symbol appear have to been implicated in some of these incidents. Other stimulants indicated include cocaine, and amphetamines which in some circumstances have been taken in combination.

Double Cross / Double Black:
This is also an Ecstasy type substance implicated in the death of one man and the serious illness of four others in Donegal.
