The Indo has today revealed that a FAS executive spent €400,000 on expenses between 2001 and 2008 - an average of €50,000 a year.
Greg Craig - he hilariously held the post of director of corporate affairs until the scandal came to light - racked up the credit card bill by wining and dining his way all over the world.
Mr Craig was suspended in December, when the extent of the expenses was revealed, but was reinstated in February following pressure from his union.
The most disgraceful aspect of this story is that Mr Craig has not lost his job presumably because all of the expenses were signed off and nobody queried the lavish amounts in all of the eight years.
If Mr Craig had lost his job it would have simply started a domino effect as FAS was evidently staffed by some of the most wastrel executives in the country.
Credit card limits, which had been €100,000, have now been reduced to €7,000.
