Michael Lowry: Why I reject £5m allegation
The fact, as supported by all of the sworn evidence given to the tribunal since 1997, is that I did not benefit at all, let alone to the tune of millions
An article was published in the Irish Independent on May 27 under the headline 'Tribunal will reveal findings on money trail to ex-minister.' This article was written by Sam Smyth about the Moriarty Tribunal and its pending report into its 13-year inquiry into my personal and professional affairs.
During that period, my family and I have endured an enormous level of adverse media attention and intrusion; far above the level that any person could regard as reasonable. In my view, a great deal of this reporting has been unfair and inaccurate and I have chosen not to become involved in disputes with the media.
