Ahern and the $45,000 Question: Part II
Ahern's fundraiser, Mr Des Richardson, received $10,000 in cash in 1994
The Irish Daily Mail reports today that Bertie Ahern's personal fundraiser, Des Richardson, was handed over $10,000 in cash from a property developer in Manchester in May 1994. Mr Richardson returned to Ireland with the $10,000 in cash.
A lodgement of cIRP£28,000 in December 1994 to Mr Ahern's bank account in all probability was the consequence of a lodgement of USD$45,000 in cash, less IRP£5 commission.
Mr Ahern vehemently denies receiving Dollars (albeit the evidence suggests otherwise).
The Mail also reports that the Tribunal is investigating a Manchester Bank Account.
