General Election candidate Michael Lowry TD is to appeal a decision of the High Court to proceed with a case for alleged tax liability, he has told The Tipperary Star.
The Independent candidate who is expected to top the poll in the Tipperary constituency in Friday's election stated that following the unanimous decision of both Tax Appeal Commissioners, he has no tax liability. And, his lawyers have asked the High Court to halt the Director of Public Prosecutions action agianst him for the alleged offences.
“The High Court held that the case should still proceed and that it should be dealt with in Dublin and not Tipperary, even though I have no financial liability and never resided in Dublin.
“I will be appealing the decision to the Court of Appeal and if necessary to the European Courts.
“I wish to confirm, both I personally and my company are in procession of tax clearance certificates,” Deputy Lowry told The Tipperary Star this week.
