The leader of Renua has said her legal fees - at the centre of a complaint to the Standards in Public Office Commission - are 'nobody's business'.
The Sunday Independent reports - Lucinda Creighton has turned down requests to give details on how much money was paid to her legal team in a High Court case involving developer Michael O'Flynn.
A recent complaint to the standards watchdog alleges Ms Creighton received a discount for the services - which could amount to a benefit in kind.
The newspaper reports it received a copy of a solicitor’s letter to state that the fees had been paid - but not the actual amount.
Deputy Creighton has said she does not need to tell anyone the figure: “Well it’s nobody’s business to be honest,
“That’s a matter for my solicitor and for me.
“I have clarified that I was billed for legal fees and I paid them in full and the Sunday Independent for whatever reason, have decided to put this spurious story once again, for two weeks running, in their paper.”
