There's an Irish connection
1999 Indo - Koreans probe alleged Irish fraud
THE South Korean authorities are investigating an Irish company's possible role in an alleged $US900m fraud and tax evasion swindle.The investigation follows last week's arrest of the chairman of Korean Air, Yang-Ho Cho, on charges of tax evasion and embezzlement which may have involved a company with an address at number 2, Dawson Street, Dublin.

Why is such a man given the position of Honorary Consul by the DFA ?

He's got plenty of money and paid off some politician to grease his wheels and probably his daughter's wagon wheels too!

In fairness: Pretty much everyone in South Korea's been to jail for fraud or corruption. And who hasn't screamed at someone for being given macadamia nuts? It's like the honeydew melon of the nut world.

To be even more fair, the problem was that the macadamia nuts were served in a packet and not on a plate!
I'd be nutraged too!!!

Good spot.

The answer to your question is for you to relax, listen to a song perhaps, maybe this one which is over a hundred years old.

Did she have to open the packet herself? The hell was the flight Siberia to Vladivostok? Did she have to queue for beets in the town square afterwards? Ridiculous. I'm not saying she was right, but I can totally understand it.

I'd be even more miffed if Pop-Pop was also the chairman and CEO. The crinkling noise that the packet would make as I was fishing for a macadamia nut would really annoy the ************************ out of me!

It does make a pleasant change , when was the last time any Irish politician / banker went to jail for fraud and corruption . Could it be because they are not frauds and are not corrupt :roll:, baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

I'm more interested in the connection to an address in Dublin. I've been waiting for some chickens used to flying at 30,000 feet to come home to roost around the area of aircraft leasing for quite some time.

Garda Joe better start licking the stubby pencil. He must have nearly used it all up on the banking inquiry.

I see from wikipedia that "has held the title of honorary consulate-general to Ireland in the Republic of Korea since 1995."

So Dick Spring was the Minister for Foreign Affairs who appointed him - and we all remember that Dick was squeaky clean.

Jayze he must be knackered altogether honorary consuling for Ireland all that time. It is a miracle he hasn't killed anyone through sheer tiredness.

May be unrelated entirely but I share your fascination with that sector.
Everywhere I’ve worked internationally there are some Mick bean counters making big money in leasing.
I get why ireland has tax dvantages as a brass plate base for such activity ( though it’s a classic example of wan area of economic activity that government should be using other means to control inorder to protect the viability of the tax system for more productive sectors like manufacturing and people heavy financial operations )

What I don’t get is why In this sector apparent Irish owners / exec directors make out like bandits.....it doesn’t happen in other sectors leveraging our tax laws , so why in this one area are there levels of indigenous control and ownership that make chinas foreign investment rules seem open?
Is it just expertise (but what expertise? Knowing the paperwork or shell company sequenced etc???) or something else ?

There is a particular class of person who seeks to be made an honorary consul.

This story surprises me not at all.
I was actually delivered by the Irish Consul , who was Irish, when I first saw the light of day a few decades ago in another country.

Basically, I stood no chance.
