    I said it years ago that it will be nigh on impossible to secure an unappealable conviction in any of these cases in Ireland. They should be tried elsewhere. Brussels, perhaps.
    There's merit in that.

    Finding a court in Ireland that was completely insulated from the whole kerkuffle is, I'd wager, impossible, such was the magnitude of involvement of Anglo.

    It's Ireland - our brilliant, 1st world legal system will break little sweat finding a way to make this go away for Seanie.

    Can't having him divulging burial sites now can we?

    If he was going to divulge, he'd have already done it. Drumm is waiting in the wings and will sing like a canary to keep himself out of the pokey.

    Irish Times reporting that anyone who ever marched on Anti Austerity demos or were negatively impacted by the crash can't be on the jury!!!!
    so I can assume that rules out everyone paying USC from being on the Jury??

    That's certainly an argument that could be made...at least with regard to grounds for appeal.

    Doesn't matter who's on the jury... I'd say Seán is as safe as houses... imo.

    This is Ireland after all... a country in which it took six months for the gardai to cross the threshold of Anglo after the sh!t hit the fan.

    I have zero confidence in the Irish justice system.
