Fake WeRe Bank cheques.

You have to admit though -- laundering money in a launderette is pretty audacious. Smart and ballsy even. 8)

Doesn't the money get damp when you put it in the washing machine :?:

This Howard fella is some piece of work

Quote:
Thomas Hamann, Rafael Francischini and Cosme Blanco were tenants at 7 Parkhill Way, Kilnamanagh, Dublin 24, where they paid rent of €1,400 per month. They said they had to deliver the money at the end of each month in cash to the Clean City Launderette, Talbot Street, Dublin, which is operated by Ms McClean.
Mr Howard was not represented at the RTB hearing, where the tenants said that soon after taking up the tenancy they became aware that a relative of Mr Howard was living in an annex at the end of the garden which was connected to the dwelling and used its electricity and gas....
...The tenants were served with notices to quit within three days, with the reason given being that the dwelling was “potentially dangerous”. The tenants, according to the RTB report, submitted that they were extremely concerned about Mr Howard’s behaviour and elected to leave.
However the manner in which they had been treated, they told the hearing, meant that they were at a loss in relation to a number of matters. They also never got their deposits back.
The hearing was told that at one stage Mr Howard had admitted he had entered the house and taken the wifi code from their modem. According to their submission, the tenants had changed the password after they had moved in and found that someone else was using the service for which they were paying. They were later told by the landlord that it was being used by his relative in the annex....
....The Kilnamanagh house is now being rented out on a per-bed basis, at €350 per month per bed, according to a recent online advertisement. The house had seven beds, the advertisement said....
...In his Mountjoy Square apartments Mr Howard has put up notices making certain claims about the nature of Irish law and his ability to make certain orders for obscure reasons.

A notice in one of his Mountjoy Square apartments states that any “implied right of access” is removed for any employee acting for the council, the Revenue Commissioners, banks, or debt collectors and that any “transgression” would be dealt with under common law.
Court records show that Mr Howard has initiated a number of High Court cases in recent years, acting as a litigant in person or without a legal representative.


So he likes to claim he'll get heavies involved if tenants won't do as their told. And he also seems to have a bit of the Freeman about him.
Are the Revenue Commissioners looking at him yet I wonder?
You'd think DCC would be out at all his gaffs at this stage from a safety aspect with all those beds crammed in...but I won't hold my breath on that one.

That's even better... laundering money in a launderette operated by Ms McClean. :lol:

Paul makes the front page!
Man hospitalised after 'up to 10 heavies' forcibly evict tenants from Dublin apartment
It is understood the tenant taken to hospital suffered bruising to his ribs after he was dragged out of the apartment.
Pictures below show the damage done to the door after the men forced their way in at around 10am this morning.
The High Court issued an injunction before Christmas blocking the landlord, Mr Paul Howard, from evicting the tenants until the termination of the dispute resolution proceedings with the RTB.

How have the Gardai not moved in? This is gone beyond a civil matter at this stage.
This is 2 fingers to the Judge who put a stay on the evictions so I expect the Courts to fight back on this

Sinn Fein, despite their strong presence in this constituency and eagerness to jump into anything involving housing either via social media messages or assembling rent-a-crowds, are conspicuous by their absence here. With Mr Howard's Northern connections, history of receiving large personal loans from Derry residents and his willingness and ability to use force to get what he wants and disregard for any potential consequences, one does wonder if he's a pension fund administrator.

Who finances Paul Howard?

Quote:
The Quinlans are a prominent Waterford Fine Gael family. At least three generations of Raymond’s family have been involved in local FG politics, with several of his relatives serving as local Councillors. His uncle Hilary Quinlan was a FG local councillor and Mayor of Waterford in the 1990s and 2000s. Hilary was on the board of Irish Water until he resigned in 2014. He was appointed to this position in November 2013 by Phil Hogan, then Minister for the Environment, and Pat Rabbitte, then Minister for Communications. When Hilary resigned he was hired as a driver by Fine Gael TD Paudie Coffey (who at the time was a junior minister for Environment, Community and Local Government – he’s now a Senator).

A few of Raymond’s uncles (Hilary included) have been involved in property development and investment companies around Waterford City and county. In the early 1990s they owned Funderland.

Why would a businessman with prominent Fine Gael connections be securing Paul Howards properties?


You chose your name wisely. :roll:

Looks like they had the IrishTimes on speed dial https://www.irishtimes.com/news/social- ... -1.3371707
The upper left of the door was smashed through when The Irish Times arrived shortly before 11am. The occupants were standing in the corridor with two gardaí from Fitzgibbon Street Garda station. One young man was dressed only in a T-shirt and boxer shorts.
Mr Howard and a number of others could be heard inside the apartment. An electric screwdriver could be heard, and screws seen coming though the door from the inside, apparently to prevent the door being opened.
