Awkward House Meeting!
Last night: They All Have It Infamy
The High Court has heard Mr O’Brien received a memory stick from an anonymous source which contained damaging allegations against him, and, it is claimed, originated in Red Flag.
Mr O’Brien apparently has been concerned for some time at the number and regularity of hostile stories about him here and abroad.
He was concerned the drip-feed of stories was being orchestrated as they appeared excessive even for a person who is in the public eye because of business interests at home and abroad.
The court has heard the businessman feared there was a campaign being mounted against him funded by a unknown entity with the aim of damaging his reputation. In the last year there have been many stories about Digicel, Mr O’Brien’s purchase of a new jet, and the Moriarty Tribunal amongst others, mainly negative.
