Ex-taxman is wanted for quiz on €4.5m debt
A WARRANT has been issued for the arrest of a former tax inspector for failing to turn up in court to answer questions over debts of €4.5m to a bank and to the Revenue.
James Leonard Daly (otherwise James Daly, Shay Daly and Seamus Daly) did not appear in court hours after allegedly seeking to urgently transfer €451,282 funds to a Spanish bank account.
Daly (54), Kinvara, Woodleigh Park, Model Farm Road, Cork, is a qualified accountant who worked in the Revenue for around eight years.
He allegedly owes €2.5m to ACC Bank and €2m in taxes.
Mr Justice Peter Kelly issued the warrant against Daly after he failed to appear in the High Court last Friday for continuing cross-examination by ACC.
The judge also made orders restraining Mr Daly leaving this jurisdiction without leave of the court and freezing a sum of €451,282 which he allegedly sought to move.
