Nine years and seven months in gestation, the State prosecution of Gerry Adams' friend and Sinn Fein supporter Thomas 'Slab' Murphy of Ballybinaby, Co Louth, for tax evasion took only 20 minutes in judgment.

Mr Justice Paul Butler, presiding, speaking on behalf of his two fellow members of the Special Criminal Court, Judge Ann Ryan and Judge John O'Hagan, delivered judgment shortly before lunch last Thursday. Murphy (66) sat in the public benches of the court alone to hear the verdict. He seemed to mouth some words as the verdict was read out but was mainly impassive.
