    So...now it's been quashed: Can we retry him and put him back in prison?[/QUOTE]

    In Ireland (read Nigeria) corrupt politicians never usually do time unless one is as stupid as Ivor.

    The developer Michael Ryan was found Not Guilty of making corrupt payments. I know this sounds stupid but based on that verdict alone Forsey should be found Not Guilty.

    When Forsey's conviction was quashed, it was reported that the matter would be before the court again in two weeks for the DPP to decide whether or not to have a retrial. However, there still hasn't been reported whether or not the decision has been made.

    There was a public employee stopped at Dublin Airport at one point with a large amount of cash on his person. The state ended up apologising to him.

    That's the sort of system we are talking about. A party backer is found by a Tribunal to have given money to a politician in the matter of a bid for mobile telephone license rights.

    The same fellow wanders in and out of Ireland at will and without a care in the world. It is like Egypt except without the pyramids.

    Anyone heard how the investigation in Galway is going on the council official who managed to get his direct family member a local authority house off the housing list?

    Y'know. Stuff that would get people arrested and a sentence in the big house in the rest of western Europe.
