Michael Lowry tax trial adjourned

The case against former government minister Michael Lowry for alleged tax offences has been adjourned at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

Yesterday, the independent TD was granted permission in the High Court to bring a legal challenge aimed at preventing the trial from going ahead.

The 60-year-old of Glenreigh in Holycross, Co Tipperary, is facing four charges that he allegedly filed incorrect tax returns in 2003 and 2007.

The Independent TD, who has yet to indicate how he will plead to the charges, initially appeared before Thurles District Court last year.

Last April Judge Elizabeth MacGrath sent him forward for trial to Nenagh Circuit Court, on his own bail bond of €500.

His trial was later transferred from Tipperary to Dublin on the application of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

The case was briefly before Dublin Circuit Criminal Court earlier where Judge Martin Nolan adjourned the case until February 27.

Mr Lowry is excused from attending the next court date.
