A well known politician in Dublin has been accused of sexual abuse.
Two young males have alleged they were sexually abused by a Dublin politician, with specialist Gardaí now investigating the incident.
Independent.ie reports that the Gardaí’s Divisional Protective Services Unit at Store Street station have been carrying out the investigation for two months following the complaint, with the allegations being treated as “credible”.
The politician in question has been interviewed by Gardaí, but has not yet been arrested or charged with any crime.
The two complainants allege that they were attacked by the politician whilst in a car.
“Gardai have spoken to this individual and he has been asked to give an account of what has been alleged,” a senior source told Independent.ie.
“There is a lot more work to be done on this case,” the source added.
The news comes just days after, in a separate incident, two other men allegedly forced a young male victim to perform a sex act on them near the GPO.
“This was a nightmare ordeal for a young man who was making his way home after a night out,” a senior source told Independent.ie.
The victim was said to be “traumatised”, but did not require hospital treatment as a result of the assault.
