The plot thickens: Fraud squad probes Paul Hyde report as political spotlight turns on planning board chief
August 21 2022 02:30 AM
The controversy engulfing An Bord Pleanála (ABP) is deepening. The Garda National Economic Crime Bureau (GNECB) has assigned a senior officer to examine a report on ABP’s former deputy chairman for possible evidence of criminality. The officer will examine the report on Paul Hyde line by line for potential breaches of the planning legislation underpinning the operation and governance of ABP.
The assessment is likely to take a number of weeks and involve legal input from the GNECB’s advisers.
