The threat of imprisonment facing model and TV presenter Glenda Gilson over failing to provide an adequate statement of the financial affairs of a car firm of which she is a director, was lifted by the High Court today.
The Gilson Motor company of Annaly Drive, Ongar Wood, Dublin 15 was wound up by the High Court in March after it failed to pay a tax bill of €141,937 to the Revenue Commissioners.
Ms Gilson and her brother Damien who are directors of the company, both appeared in court today.
Ms Justice Mary Finlay Geoghegan said that they were liable for the costs of the application, but that since Ms Gilson was not involved in the day-to-day running of the company, her brother was ordered to indemnify her for the costs.
The court had earlier heard from Counsel for the liquidator, Gary Lennon, that given there was now compliance with the demand for a statement of affairs, the liquidator was no longer seeking attachment and committal of the Gilsons. However, he was seeking the costs of the application which had been before the court on a number of occasions.
