MICHAEL Lynn's name cropped up again in the courts this week, in an application for a repossession order regarding five houses he jointly bought as part of his ambitious property empire. Michael who, do I hear?

Well may you ask, because it's been almost three years since this corrupt solicitor's name was brought to the attention of the gardai by the Law Society, and more than two-and-a-half years since he skipped the jurisdiction, leaving €80m in liabilities behind.

In the media, we like to say he fled Ireland, or he's on the run, but that implies more attention from the authorities than this crooked cheat seems to attract.
