Irish perjury law: Strictly reserved for the peasants

David Cameron’s former communications chief, Andy Coulson, has been arrested and charged with perjury.

Coulson is suspected of lying under oath at the trial of former Scottish Socialist Party leader Tommy Sheridan

Sheridan, who was on trial for perjury, was found guilty and jailed for three years.

The arrest, trial and jailing of similarly influential people in Ireland is an absolute impossibility.

There is, of course, a law against perjury in Ireland but its enforcement is strictly reserved for ordinary citizens

  1. Hi Anthony,

    You seem to be speaking from experience..?

    I’m about to catch a Garda committing perjury soon, and wondered if you had anything to share..?

    Regards,
