Redmond corruption trial argument continues

The Ir£10,000 corruption trial of George Redmond has continued on day-eight of the hearing in legal argument in the absence of the jury at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

Mr Redmond (aged 83) of College Gate, Castleknock, a former assistant city and county manager, has pleaded not guilty to two charges arising out of a compulsory purchase order on 167 acres of land at Buzzardstown and Coolmine, in north-west Co Dublin.

He denies receiving Ir£10,000 from the late Fianna Fáil councillor, Mr Patrick Dunne, on a date between October 10, 1985 and June 26, 1989 as an inducement in respect of the compulsory purchase order and to receiving the money as a reward for showing favour to another in relation to the same land.

Judge Joseph Matthews has requested the jury to return to court on Monday, day-nine of the trial.
