The Garda Commissioner says he won't take legal action over the Public Accounts Committee's plans to hear from a Garda whistleblower.

Martin Callinan says it's not in the public interest for the GardaĆ­ to pursue legal proceedings against an Oireachtas committee.

He's also promised to co-operate fully with the Garda Ombudsman investigation into alleged corruption in the penalty points system.
