Jim Kennedy back in High Court to argue for sale of Jackson Way lands

Businessman Jim Kennedy has appeared in the High Court looking to lift a freezing order prohibiting the sale of land owned by Jackson Way in Carrickmines in South Dublin.

It is argued that the order secured by the Criminal Assets Bureau in 2006 should be lifted in relation to 68 acres of agricultural land, as this was not rezoned, and is not the subject of unjust enrichment proceedings.

Mr Kennedy is currently facing trial on 16 criminal charges of making corrupt payments to politicians for votes in favour of land rezoning.

The application will be heard in the High Court next Thursday.
