A judge has ordered that former All-Ireland winning Wexford hurler Paul Codd be arrested and brought before the High Court for his ongoing refusal to co-operate with his bankruptcy.
Mr Justice Brian McGovern directed that a warrant for Mr Codd's arrest be issued after the court was informed he had not complied with undertakings, given last January, to meet with the court-appointed official in charge of his bankruptcy, Chris Lehane.
Last December, Mr Codd, who did not attend court yesterday and is currently outside the jurisdiction, was briefly jailed for his alleged non-compliance with the bankruptcy process.
He was released after providing a statement of affairs to Mr Lehane, and promised to co-operate.
Yesterday, Mr Lehane told the court thatMr Codd had not attended at three pre-arranged meetings.
Mr Lehane said Mr Codd "was in contempt of court" and he was seeking an order under the Bankruptcy Act that Mr Codd be arrested and brought before the court.
