Ex-councillor in investment probe

A FORMER Fianna Fail councillor was arrested yesterday in connection with a probe into investments.

The former councillor -- who stepped down from his local authority role several years ago -- was questioned by gardai who called to his business address yesterday. They also conducted a number of related searches.

The man was expected to be released without charge last night. The Irish Independent understands that a file on the matter will be prepared for the DPP to determine what action, if any, will be taken.
