A ‘ghost broker’ who sold fraudulent insurance policies to innocent motorists is the first person to be convicted for such an offence in the history of the State.
Martin Hanudel (27) will spend eight months in jail after the Garda Special Investigations Unit uncovered how he was selling forged and invalid discounted insurance to people on Facebook.
An anonymous call to the Garda Confidential Line in October 2016 sparked an investigation which has resulted in more than a dozen files being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
