Today's Sindo headline is being mentioned on a number of threads so thought I'd start one that simply deals with this breaking news. No link yet, but the gist of today's story by Elaine Byrne and Gene Kerrigan, is that Deputy Lowry may have said something, caught on tape, that may suggest he didn't declare a very large sum of money. CAB may have now been handed this tape.

Will post link as soon as it's available.

I cringe that the voters of my constituency repeatedly vote for this guy. If I say a bad word about him up in my local I'm attacked left right and centre..... So I do... At every opportunity :)

Why CAB and not Revenue?

I'm nearly tempted to buy the Sindo for the first time in years, but will hang on in hope here.

CAB is the appropriate place for these sort of cases, as it is much easier to bury them there, never to be seen again, similar to the usual response where the file was sent to the DPP.

I'd strongly disagree with that. CAB have been very effective to date.
