    The report from BreakingNews.ie is very interesting.


    "During pre-trial legal argument today, Natrium’s solicitor James McGuill applied for an order to allow a computer expert for the defence examine computer files of the prosecution witness statements.

    He said he had applied in accordance with Director of Public Prosecutions guidelines for copies of earlier drafts of statements made by the WRC inspector.

    He said that he had been told that the computer documents had been revised 168 times, but it was not possible to access the earlier drafts. The prosecution had engaged in a process of deleting each draft and that, Mr McGuill argued, “amounted to a destruction of evidence”

    A description of the documents’ properties could also say when they had been printed, but the hard-copies were not available.

    He said that he was entitled to these versions which also included any possible emailed versions of the documents or drafts which may still be on computer servers.

    He also submitted that the earlier drafts of the statements were essential for cross-examination.

    He said disclosure already furnished shows that there had been 78 hours of editing of the statements and the material had been subject to multiple inputs over a protracted period of time.

    The application was supported by Ronan Kennedy BL, for Ms Foley who has an address at Hollybank Avenue, Upper Ranelagh, Dublin 6.

    Judge Brennan indicated that he would grant the order to allow Natrium’s computer expert to examine the computer files in question.

    Breffni Gordon BL for the prosecution said that would not be a problem. However, following recess, Mr Gordon told the court that obstruction charges against Natrium and Ms Foley were being withdrawn."

    Echoes here of the Anglo case earlier this year?

    Surprise surprise , judge now orders all remaining changed struck out due to incompetence of the prosecution in not providing information to the court that was sought.

    A far too familiar story by now when it comes to white collar crime.

    This turn of events is very depressing.
    What is the point in having Companies legislation if breaches of this legislation are not properly prosecuted?
    This country is fast becoming the best little country to trample all over workers' rights.

    Got a shock when I heard that on the news - but there are other charges being pursued with regard to the closure:


    A separate prosecution against a director of OCS Operations began last month.
    James Brydie of Kingsmere Road, London, faces six charges.
    He is accused of impeding and giving false or misleading information to a WRC inspector, as well as four counts of breaking employment protection laws.

    Our courts are starting to look like the one in Ancien Regime France, supporting the better off.

    FG have not lifted a finger to prevent another Clery's.
