Former IRA chief faces court on Wednesday

Alleged former IRA chief of staff Thomas ‘slab’ Murphy will face Dundalk District Court this Wednesday on nine tax offence charges

Prominent IRA personality
Thomas
‘slab’ Murphy
will appear before Dundalk District Court this Wednesday
charged with failing to file tax returns on nine occasions.

Murphy was surrounded by armed police on guard as he was brought before a Co
Louth court not long after medical staff called in to examine him said he was
feigning illness.

The alleged former IRA chief of staff, reputedly worth between £35m to £40m,
gained from money laundering and smuggling, was released on bail after facing
nine charges of failing to file tax returns. He is to appear again before
Dundalk District Court this Wednesday.

Judge Flan Brennan, at Ardee District Court, remanded Murphy on his own bail
of €20,000 (£14,000) and two independent sureties of €50,000, according to
The Scotsman. He ordered Murphy to surrender his passport, sign in
daily at Dundalk police station and live at an address in the border county of
Monaghan.
