An Tanaiste Leo Varadkar T.D. - Press Association

Tánaiste Leo Varadkar firmly believes that no charges will be brought against him in relation to the Garda investigation of his leaking of a confidential document as the country’s leader.

An investigation was launched by gardaí after he gave the document to a friend in the now-defunct National Association of General Practitioners while he was Taoiseach.

Leo Varadkar admitted that what he did was an error of judgement and apologised but said it wasn’t illegal or corrupt. Speaking today with Michael Reade on LMFM he says he won’t face charges;

I don’t contemplate that happening, ‘You know I’ve been trying to avoid creating news stories about this issue, so you know that’s not something I’m considering. I don’t believe that’s going to happen.”

When pressed further, the Tanaiste confirmed he does not think he’ll be charged ”I don’t believe that’s going to happenWhat I’m saying is that its not going to arise.”
