John Drennan: Weary taxpayers face €700m bill for tribunals
Published 25/04/2010 | 05:00
AFTER bailing out the bankers, the near bankrupt Irish taxpayer is now faced with the real possibility of having to fork out €700m to cover the legal costs of long-running tribunals.
To date, our tribunals have created 22 tribunal millionaires amongst the €2,500-a-day ranks of the tribunal barrister.
The Flood/Mahon Tribunal has created 16 millionaires while the long-running Moriarty Tribunal has created six millionaires over the last 13 years.
