A High Court judge has suggested that the Garda Fraud Squad could become involved in investigating the affairs of solicitor Michael Lynn.
Mr Justice Peter Kelly said he needed to consider whether or not to send documentation received from First Active to the Director of the National Bureau of Fraud Investigation.
The judge said he would hear the opinions of lawyers for First Active on Monday afternoon.
Mr Justice Peter Kelly made his comments at the end of First Active's proceedings against Michael Lynn for the recovery of €5.1m.
He said although this matter was a civil matter the court could not lose sight of the matters referred to in the sworn documents submitted to the court by First Active.
Mr Justice Kelly referred particularly to claims by First Active that Mr Lynn had not registered seven properties he had offered as security for the loan he received and that he may have sold on three of the properties without discharging the mortgages or paying the money back.
Mr Justice Kelly said he had to consider whether or not he should ask the Registrar of the Commercial Court to send on the papers to the Director of the National Bureau of Fraud Investigation.
There are two chances of this guy doing time. Fuck all and none.
