How fair is this?
• I read of the conviction of a man who misdirected funds from his employer (An Post) to fund his gambling. This man had been unfortunate to suffer from a gambling addiction.
I note that the authorities were able to bring the matter to court for discrepancies that occurred as recently as last year.
The speed of this action by the State is in sharp contrast to its inaction in bringing to account the huge number of people behind the financial ruin of this country.
