RELATIVES of jailed bankrupt businessman Sean Quinn have avoided handing a receiver their data from mobile phones and computers for the time being.
The five adult children of Mr Quinn and three of their spouses – Stephen Kelly, Niall McPartland and Karen Woods – agreed to give the various devices and other material to a company, Epsion, which will download the information and keep it in a locked environment.
Receiver Declan Taite, who was appointed by the IBRC over their personal assets, agreed to a conditional stay on orders requiring them to hand over to him personal email account passwords, phones and other material. This will apply until there is an outcome of the Supreme Court appeal against the orders made at the Commercial Court last month.
Chief Justice Ms Justice Susan Denham said the court would fix a date for the appeal when all legal documents were lodged.
