An insolvent cosmetic surgery company being sued by 158 women over faulty breast implants looks set to be wound up by the High Court.
Dozens of customers of the Harley Medical Group (Ireland) have been trying to stop a liquidator from being appointed here over concerns it would adversely affect their claims.
However the court has ruled today that it has the jurisdiction to make a winding up order.
"They are in an unhappy situation they have been supplied with acknowledged faulty material," said solicitor Simon McGarr who represents around 20 of the women who received PIP implants made from industrial grade silicone.
"They have health concerns, some of them have suffered quite serious injuries, they have required surgery."
