Redmond corruption trial contiunues

The Ir£10,000 corruption trial of George Redmond has continued again with legal issues in the absence of the jury on day nine of the hearing 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 County 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 today.
