reading into the latest answer to a dail question on refugees & legal costs, I should but probably an not at the final bill over 5 years of €5.1m. One barrister alone says Shatter "received €623,862 for work on the appeals tribunal between 2008 and last year for 1,358 cases average (€460 per case).
Former Foreign Affairs Minister David Andrews received €260,363 in relation to 460 cases over the period. There is some money been made here on Appeals. I find it very high price for us to pay for this type of thing. Surely it is at entry immigration level that people wishing to move to Ireland should have papers in order or organised for them, and a judgement made on the spot or over a week or so. This has turned into a legal money maker for some. Thought we were broke.
