Former councillors charged with corruption - RT NewsFour former Fianna Fáil Dublin County Councillors have appeared at Dublin District Court on corruption charges.
Don Lydon, Sean Gilbride, Colm Mcgrath and Tony Fox faces charges of receiving money in relation to land rezoning.
Mr Lydon, 72, is charged with receiving money corruptly in 1992.
Mr Fox faces five charges of receiving money corruptly in 1992 and 1997.
All four have been granted bail.
The court was told that Mr Gilbride was arrested in Skerries this morning and charged. In reply to the charge he said 'not guilty'.
When charged today Mr McGrath replied 'definitely reject that charge'.
Mr Lydon replied 'not guilty'.
When arrested today at Harcourt terrace Garda station Mr Fox replied 'not guilty'.
Interesting. I wonder if this has what relation this has (if any) to the ongoing tribunal investigations.
