    So what was Lowry up to in 2002? A settlement with Kevin Phelan for starters.
    Mr O’Connor was first drafted in to organise Mr Lowry’s tax affairs ahead of the McCracken Tribunal, and his firm was paid for this work. During the course of the Moriarty Tribunal, he continued to advise Mr Lowry.

    In 2002, he was instrumental in brokering separate settlements on behalf of Mr Lowry and Denis O’Brien with the Northern Irish land agent Kevin Phelan.

    This took place in 2002 but the tribunal did not learn about what it called the "shuttle diplomacy" until much later.

    The work related to the English property projects Mr Phelan sourced for Mr Lowry and Mr O’Brien.

    The tribunal said it was a source of some dispute that Mr O’Connor was not paid for his mediation role by Mr Lowry or Mr O’Brien.

    However, it was critical of the accountant’s actions.

    "Mr O’Connor, who had by 2001 developed a positive professional relationship with the tribunal, abused that relationship, and the tribunal is satisfied deliberately provided false response and false statement to the tribunal in 2005," it said.

    However, the tribunal report also noted that Mr O’Connor was not acting on his own account but was a facilitator and agent for Mr Lowry.

    Lowry case postponed until April 1.
    A case against former Minister Michael Lowry who faces charges he knowingly filed false tax returns has been adjourned until next month to clarify a number of issues.
    State Solicitor, Mr O'Brien, said he has been instructed specifically by the DPP in relation to issues Mr Collins wishes to have clarified before the service of the book of evidence."The book is ready," he said. However, he said in the circumstances the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) is "anxious the matter proceed but proceed properly". He said the answers would be provided to the clarification questions sought by Mr Collins.
    The judge was informed the matter would take four weeks.
    Judge MacGrath said she would extend the time for service of the book of evidence, adjourning the case by consent until April 1. However, she told the court she expected the case would be returned for trial on that occasion.
    The court has already heard the matter is to be dealt with by indictment before the Circuit Criminal Court by judge and jury rather than in the District Court.
    Under section 1078 (2) (A) of the Taxes Consolidation Act, the charges carry a fine of up to €3,000 and/or up to six months in jail, if proven in a District Court and a fine of up to €127,000 and/or up to five years imprisonment, if proven before a jury in the Circuit Court.

    All one can really say is that the Criminal Court sounds better for the purpose.

    Cross posting from the Moriarty Tribunal thread. Lowry looks to be in pretty deep with his legal fees.

    UPDATED 27 MARCH 2014 09:14 PMA JUDGMENT for €650,000 granted last year against independent TD Michael Lowry has been vacated on consent at the High Court pending the outcome of a full hearing of proceedings brought against him by a firm of accountants.
    This week, on consent of the sides, the High Court Deputy Master vacated the judgment order and all matters will now be decided at a full court hearing.The sides have agreed a timetable for exchange of legal documents for that hearing which will involve the matter coming before the court again next November to deal with issues relating to discovery of documents.
    BBT Chartered Accountants, Torquay Road, Foxrock, had sought final judgment from the Master arising from fees claimed for work carried out by the firm for Mr Lowry in relation to the Moriarty Tribunal.
    Mr Lowry's side had sought an adjournment, arguing it was a contested case with the cause of action dating back to the McCracken tribunal in 1997.
    Mr O'Connor said solicitors for Mr Lowry had, in correspondence last June and July, conceded a substantial sum of money is owing but had not quantified that and instead argued the fees should not be recoverable until after the Moriarty Tribunal decision on costs.
    There was no agreement to defer payment of BBT's fees, Mr O'Connor said.

    At the November hearing, Andrew Fitzpatrick BL, for BBT, said Mr Justice Michael Moriarty had recently issued a costs order in respect of Mr Lowry at the Tribunal and judgment should be entered in favour of BBT.

    Sickening to watch this tramp be allowed near this team for his own self publicity with debts flying all over the place.

    These players are amateurs, by accepting his gift they endorse his corruption, if just one of them objected,Lowry would have to walk away.

    Lowry's back in court today.
    Mr Lowry is seeking to have the proceedings struck out on two grounds.The first is an application to have the charges dismissed pursuant to Section 4E of the Criminal Justice Act 1967 (as amended) which allows an accused, any time after he has been sent forward for trial, to apply to the trial court to dismiss one or more of the charges against him.
    The second ground he wants the charges struck out or permanently stayed is on what his counsel, Patrick Treacy SC, told Judge Teehan is the "inherent jurisdiction of the court".
    Mr Lowry (60) of Glenreigh, Holycross, Co Tipperary, faces a total of four counts of “knowingly or wilfully” filing incorrect tax returns.
    Three of the charges relate to a date in October 2003 and involves income tax for the 2002 tax period.
    The fourth charge relates to a date in August 2007 and involves income tax for the 2006 tax year.
    The charges, under section 1078 (2) (A) of the Taxes Consolidation Act, carry a fine of up to €3,000 and/or up to six months in jail, if proven in a District Court and a fine of up to €127,000 and/or up to five years imprisonment, if proven before a jury in the Circuit Court.
    The hearing continues this afternoon before Judge Teehan.

    New tax trial date set for Independent TD Michael Lowry
    Claims that Tipperary TD knowingly filed incorrect tax returns in 2003 and 2007

    As a trial date has been set, commentators on this (and other) online fora should ensure that they do not post anything that would breach the contempt of court rules.
