Seems it's because he is a bankrupt so it would not be fair to reward him with money when he never paid his legal fees in the first place. I'm guessing it's the same principle as when someone who is receiving free legal aid isn't entitled to a refund of the defence costs!

But even so, I don't understand the problem that the law has with cases funded by third parties.

Well, Seánie was innocent. Innocent I tells ya! What's more, he must have known he was innocent all along.

So the million yoyos he blew on defending himself was utterly and unneccessarily extravagent. Why should the state fund such wastefulness? All he had to do was draft a statement for the court outlining why he was innocent, the glaring truth of which would have swatted away the entirity of the frivolous and pointless prosecution. That might have set him back a couple of grand at most.

If I decide to pave the road outside my house with gold slabs, I can hardly invoice the county council for the work, can I?

Luckily for Seánie, he has an independantly wealthy wife - so he can well afford his legal costs.

He really was lucky in love, wasn't he?

Hate to say it, but Seanie will win this hands down eventually. The State's case was weak and they threw the kitchen sink at the defendants and had many of their original charges thrown out. Those charges still had to be defended however, so an innocent Seanie (as he turned out to be on this occasion) still had to spend money getting them thrown out or risk being jailed as it was a criminal prosecution.

The various branches of the executive did not cover themselves in glory either in the taking of the case or in the witness box. Nolan is a Circuit court judge with several years of potential judicial promotion ahead of him, so he won't give way but when this reaches a higher court, I think we can expect a highly quotable judgement in Seanie's favour which slates the executive, timed a few months before the election.

A little thank you from the senior judiciary to FG / Lab and the civil service for the judicial pay amendment...

He has pleaded not guilty to 27 offences under the 1990 Companies Act.
These include 21 charges of making a misleading, false or deceptive statement to auditors and six charges of furnishing false information in the years 2002 to 2007.
