The one about him owing hundreds of millions to Anglo?

To purchase shares in Independent News and Media that are now worth a fraction of the price paid? That appeared in the UK version of The Sunday Times and not the Irish one?

The one that also raised questions about Denis’s ability to repay those debts?

YES.

That one.

Ewok failed to find anything online either. It was like it was never reported.

And if the Emperor is only partially clothed…
