What can I say? I’m shocked I tell you, shocked!.
A report into corruption in the Republic’s planning process has found that former Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern failed to truthfully account for a number of financial transactions. But the Mahon Tribunal does not make a corruption finding against Mr Ahern.
It found that Mr Ahern failed to truthfully account for a total of 165,214.25 Irish punts passing through accounts connected with him.
It also found that in relation to the B/T account, known as the Bertie/Tim account by bank staff in the Permanent TSB, Mr Ahern and his associate, Tim Collins, failed to truthfully account for 50,000 Irish punts lodged into this account between 1992 and 1994.
As you do.
