Bankruptcy reports dismissed by Perry
Former Junior Minister John Perry has dismissed reports that a bank is to pursue him for bankruptcy.
There had been reports that he faced possible bankruptcy with Danske Bank moving to register a judgement it secured against him for debts of more than €2m.
Lawyer Paul Tweed, who is representing Deputy Perry issued a statement.
He said: "I have clear and categoric instructions that the agreement my client has and continues to have with Danske Bank is being concluded to the mutual satisfaction of both parties and that any registered judgement forms part of that agreement."
Deputy Perry himself did not return a call yesterday, Monday, afternoon.
However, he was reported in a Sunday newspaper as saying: "There is an agreement that will be fully honoured and that will be very obvious in due course.
"This matter is resolved and that registration is just part of the agreement."
