Frank Connolly has this story in this morning's MoS, Frank Dunlop has apparently done a deal with CAB, in exchange for co-operation with them he is being treated as a co-operative witness in relation to the corrupt zoning of Carrickmines on behalf of its owners (including Jim Kennedy and Liam Lawlor) and will do a jail sentence for it, albeit a more lenient one. He will be granted the indulgence of being allowed to receive his Masters in Law from Trinity this month, then will be arrested and brought before the District Court. CAB's leniency towards Dunlop is predicated on his enabling them to freeze and pursue the Carrickmines land, they are treating his 'road to Damascus conversion' in April 2000 as genuine. Those of us who have followed the Quarryvale saga in detail beg to differ, it is obvious he is still covering for politicians who received payments, and for the developers who paid them. Nonetheless, it makes sense in the case of Carrickmines only to treat his evidence as genuine, which is what CAB have done. CAB's apparent motivation is to 'sterilise' Dunlop as a witness, they believe that prison time will make him a more credible witness in the actions to follow. CAB can not use tribunal evidence in such actions, but can obviously go after the same relevant information themselves, as they did with Ray Burke.
