Michael Lynn is going to be a video star!!

Isn’t justice a wonderful thing?? (cue Maman Poulet sarcasm of highest order tone!)

Michael Lynn is wanted for contempt of court, struck off from being a solicitor and loads of banks and clients want their money back…but he doesn’t want to come home (poor diddums) but there’s another court case going on where his testimony could help out a bit. So the client who needs a ‘dig out’ decides to chance his arm and say that Michael could do it by video – and the judge agreed!!

Mr Justice Frank Clarke said it was “hardly surprising� that Mr Lynn did not want to return to testify in person given the warrant over his contempt of court for failing to show up for a court appearance last year and that the solicitor could be the subject of Garda enquiries if he returned.

The judge permitted Mr Lynn’s evidence to be heard by video-link, saying it could have relevance on his judgement in the case taken by the Cunningham Group, which is owned by Galway builder Brian Cunningham, against the bank…..

…Counsel for Cunningham had argued that film director Roman Polanski had been allowed to testify via video-link from Paris in a successful libel action in London because he feared that if he returned to England, he would be arrested and extradited to the US where he is wanted on charges of having sex with an underage girl dating back to 1977.

Counsel for the bank had argued that to allow Mr Lynn to give evidence would be “an affront to the public conscience� as the outstanding arrest warrant was issued by the court, from which video-link order was sought, because of his refusal to come attend and give evidence to that court.

Yes I think there will be a lot of conscience’s affronted tonight!

There is no use in saying to the Gardai that they should hang around the venue in Budapest and nab him…it’s not a criminal charge that Michael Lynn is wanted for – no criminal charges have been set yet – if ever! So he’s safe…

Ah who needs the silly season when you have the Irish justice system! Michael is probably relaxing in the Gellert or somewhere as he reads this. Waves…
