SENATOR Ivor Callely claims that the finding of the Seanad Members' Interest Committee that he misrepresented his "normal place of residence" is based on a report that has no legal effect because the committee misdirected itself on the issue of law that was before it.

He is seeking:



  • Orders quashing the recommendation of the Seanad Members' Interest Committee to suspend him for 20 days.
  • An interim ban on any action being taken against him on foot of the Seanad's report pending the outcome of the proceedings.
  • A declaration that the Seanad Members' Interest Committee erred in law and acted outside its powers.
  • Damages.
