Wow! Expect the unexpected! 8DD


#264

There’ll be some srummage by the media if they manage to extradite him.


#265

really though, what is the point? To put him into jail where he will cost us 90k per annum? Wunderbar.

Coudl we not just give him a tar and feathering on Kildare st. and let him off to Brazil again?


#266

The modern day Ronnie Biggs.


#267

He probably has more chance of going to jail in Brazil than Ireland.


#268

Your point might be valid if seen in isolation.

However the deterrent effect on future criminals and the harm thereby avoided must also be considered.


#269

because going on the run for up to ten years before you do time while spending your ill-gotten gains is a real disincentive to people to do the same.

Not taking issue with you, but the system in general.

I presume the ‘No Glee’ policy does not apply here
I confess to a little snigger or two when I heard the news meself !


#272

Yeah, can’t see a self-respecting Latin American country extraditing anyone to a banana republic.


#273

Sadly agree.

There are certainly more pressing issues that our police and judiciary could be spending their time on.


#274

Interesting to see if the wife will come home with the two sprogs.

I’d imagine it will be a big come down for her!


#275

Accountability costs money. It is unfortunate that the rest of the country bears the cost of it but it’s necessarily so. This isn’t Peru.

There are other pressing issues that deserve attention, but not solely at the expense of this.


#276

I think the DPP should take her time with this. Really, really take her time. After all, she wants to get it right, she’s understaffed, big workload, this could take years.

Meantime, Mr. Lynn is enjoying the eminently comfortable conditions of jail courtesy of the Brazilian taxpayer.

Hold on to him lads, we’ll be right over for him.


#277

:smiley:


#278

Ah here, I think the hundred or so people he defrauded might have another point of view on that.


#279

Looks like Michael Lynn is the only Irish man who will be enjoying Brazilian hospitality for the foreseeable future…


#280

I think its great, can we let a few more criminals off on a holiday to a country with an extradition treaty, issue an arrest warrant and make that country hold them until we’re good and ready for the trial?


#281

He is where he is
