Lowest standard once again wins the day - The Irish Times - Thu, Feb 18, 2010O’Dea claims he corrected his affidavit. This is not true. No correction was made ever to the affidavit – indeed there is no such provision in the rules governing affidavits – it can’t be done.
What the Minister did was to agree a settlement with Maurice Quinlivan which prevented any further airing of the matter before the court. The judge to whom the settlement was announced had no role whatsoever in the case other than to receive the terms of settlement. The court was not appraised of any of the background of the case or asked to comment or adjudicate on the merits of the settlement or how O’Dea conducted himself in the course of the case. To suggest otherwise is false and misleading.
O'Dea said to the Dáil that he had corrected his Affidavit.
Vincent P Martin BL says that O'Dea did not correct his Affidavit. He explains why that could not be a true statement.
O'Dea has been caught out again.
