Owls chairman cleared of tax evasion

Owls chairman cleared of tax evasion

Wednesday chairman Milan Mandaric and Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp have both been cleared of tax evasion charges today.

The pair were in the dock charged with evading tax on payments totalling £189,000 during their time at Portsmouth and have been on trial at Southwark Crown Court.

The jury was set to give their verdict yesterday afternoon but were delayed until this morning and reached an unanimous verdict in clearing the pair.

Mandaric and Peter Storrie, Portsmouth's former chief executive, were also cleared of tax evasion charges at a separate trial last October.

So let's see if I've got this one right. This trial was the result of a five year investigation costing around £8million? Well I'd say someone's been cheating the public revenue and it ain't 'Arry or our Mr. Mandaric. Anyone else out there tried to report a crime in your local neighbourhood recently? Police must be a lot quicker off the mark dahn sarf. Or how about that time when you fingered the local vandal for smashing up your garden fence. Weren't so keen to prosecute then either. But five years and £8m, that's a different ball game. That's more than a few high-level junkets down to Monaco for a bit of the old 'Hello hello, what's all this then?' And what did they have after five years? Conflicting stories secretly taped by some reporter working for an extinct Sunday rag that'd give the word 'dodgy' a bad name. "It's kosher guv, honest. He swears by it an' it only cost me the price of two G&Ts." "You keep the receipts for that did yer? Good boy!" Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to convince a jury there was something fishy going on and having half of Scotland Yard sat there glowering at them for a couple of weeks merely delayed their verdict until they were all absolutely certain they were legally parked. I doubt heads will roll though. There'll be a huge discrepancy on a balance sheet somewhere but there'll still be a chance to claw some of it back when the BBC uses licence payers' money to turn the case into a lavish two-part musical production.

Excellent script OurMaurice I have just watched the news and what also stands out to me is the the incompetant representative of the HMCR makes a statement saying"I stand by my decision to bring this case to justice and have no regrets" This must have been Banker previously. Although both MM and Arry were found not guilty He than goes on to say "Let this be a lesson to people who have offshore accounts that we will catch up with you" It is clear by this statement that this A***hole was always out to make an example of these two guys from days one what ever the cost to the national purse I suppose its a bit too late now to offer Tony Pulis a back hander for Ben10!!!!!!!!!!!!
