Unverified but this has been tweeted a little earlier by Village Magazine which is reputable enough with sources:
Thursday 10 am Mahon Tribunal report, now. Mah'n and boy.
[MOD]Report is here: http://www.flood-tribunal.ie/images/sitecontent_921.pdf[/MOD]
This could be reliable given that the editor Michael Smith instigated the whole thing.
Calls for this I think...
I wonder will criminal charges follow?
So what else is going to be announced on Thursday then? It must be really bad news if they are thinking about (finally) hurling out the Mahon report as cover
It's weird how the media and certain commentators are quiet about the length of time (far too long - not the Tribunal's fault) and the costs (despite it being potentially self-financing) until very particular times - Ahern's evidence for example, or when the Quarryvale module was on, and now when the report is near publication.
So any word? I don't think it's been denied.
EDIT: RTE news tweet just now
RTÉ News @rtenews Close
A government spokesperson has said ministers expect that the Mahon Tribunal Report will be published tomorrow.
Lets up it lives up to the expectations.
bursting with excitement.
Everyone confirms that the Mahon report will be out tomorrow.
I am happy because we will no longer be spending 100s of millions of euros on this farce.
Politicians don't receive justice.
Bertie will never see a day in jail, nor will Lowry , Callely , etc
Everyone knew Bertie didn't win it on the horses. I didn't need to spend 300 million to overpaid solicitors and judges to tell me that.
You are missing the point completely.
Tribunals are a very inefficient way of bringing people to justice.
300000000 euro spent and at the end nobody is jailed ??!!
The cost is too high and the outcome is inconsequential. It will be talked about for a week then forgotten about.
Think how many white collar criminals could be brought to justice by investing 300,000,000 euro into a white collar crime unit.
Please tell me why you think tribunals are good ?
Why is it out tomorrow? We supposed to be paying an anglo bond or something
My original point was that the tribunal cost at 300 million was too expensive and that politicians generally don't see justice anyway.
What will today's report tell us that a subscription to the backissues of the Irish Times couldn't. We have heard it all before during the years and years and years of hearings. Today is just a reminder of the hundreds of millions wasted by people we foolishly trusted (politicians and then lawyers). In my opinion they are both as bad as each other when it comes to abuse of the trust placed in them and waste of taxpayer's money. They were all happy to trade their reputations for wealth. I'll be turning off the radio and TV for the day. To hell with them all.
