Well the time has finally come :)
The Mahon Report on government corruption will be released in early March, let that be the final word on it (please Sky-Fairy please).
So how do we know? Well the judges who drafted the Report have let it be known that they will be available to hear cases in early March – in other words, they will not be working the Tribunal any more, according to Paul Cullen of the Irish Times.
Judges Mary Faherty and Gerald Keys have informed court colleagues they will not be available to sit on the Circuit Court benches next week but should be available the following week, according to legal sources.
A Report by the Mahon Tribunal into corrupt payments to politicians is expected to be published in the near future.
The Minister for the Environment, Phil Hogan recently called for the publication of the Report which is being finalized by Judge Alan Mahon.
The Report is expected to be critical of former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern, prompting the current Fianna Fail leader Michael Martin to make a statement regarding the Party’s culpability.
FIANNA FÁIL leader Micheál Martin and party officials are working on a strategy to respond to the Mahon tribunal report, especially potentially adverse findings against former taoiseach Bertie Ahern.
The party has taken the view at the highest level that the final report of the planning tribunal, chaired by Judge Alan Mahon, will be a watershed moment for the party, and particularly for Mr Martin.
