Inspectors face lengthy task in INM inquiry
All signs indicate investigation at media group will be a slow burner, writes Shane Phelan
Anyone who expected a dramatic raid on the offices of Independent News & Media (INM) in the aftermath of the appointment of inspectors will have badly misjudged the task at hand.
In the days after the High Court ruling there was no sign of inspectors Sean Gillane SC and Richard Fleck at INM's headquarters in Dublin's Talbot Street, where its flagship titles, including this newspaper, are produced.
Indeed close observers of the drama unfolding at the country's largest media group believe it could be several weeks before they begin their investigation in earnest.
