THE Health Minister James Reilly, is facing fresh legal action over a nursing home investment that has saddled him with a €1.9m debt.
The latest legal proceedings against the minister and other investors in the Tipperary nursing home were registered in the High Court last Thursday.
The action was taken by Dr Dillip Jondhale, a doctor who operates the nursing home business with his wife and who is one of the original investors in the building with Dr Reilly.
It is understood it is intended to force the minister and other investors to sell the troubled property, which is now embroiled in three separate cases of litigation.
However, informed sources say attempts to sell the building have been hampered by the litigation and no realistic offers have been forthcoming.
