Fugitive businessman Ferry makes new claims against rival waste operator

Posted On Dec 22 2019 by

first_imgFugitive Donegal businessman Jim Ferry has again contacted members of Donegal County Council making claims against a fellow waste operator.Mr Ferry, who is being sought by Gardai, emailed and posted claims today to Donegal county councils and county manager Seamus Neely.In his latest correspondence, Mr Ferry claims that a previous response from Donegal County Council’s planning department did not deal with what he claimed were substantive issues. The Manorcunningham-based businessman raises a number of issues against a fellow waste operator concerning his operation.He claims that a number of aspects of his rival’s business are not operating legally.There is no proof that there is any wrongdoing on behalf of this operator.However, Mr Ferry claims that the operator has previous convictions for illegal dumping. And he warned that the council’s refusal to act on his claims means that a judicial review will have to take place.He writes “The council’s reply is so wrong that your decision to refuse to issue warning letters or issue enforcement proceedings will have to be judicially reviewed.”Mr Ferry is currently wanted by Gardai after leaving the High Court in Dublin.Mr Justice Max Barrett made a contempt of court order on August 22nd against Jim Ferry, of Ferry’s Refuse Collection Limited and Ferry’s Refuse Recycling Limited, both of Rossbracken on the outskirts of Letterkenny.While Mr Ferry was in court for the hearing of Donegal County Council’s application that he be committed to jail and was present for Mr Justice Barrett’s decision, he left before the order was written and promulgated. The order was subsequently sent to Garda headquarters in Dublin for execution by members of the force. Mr Ferry is presumed to have returned to Letterkenny where company documents give his address as Slive Sneacht Road.Fugitive businessman Ferry makes new claims against rival waste operator was last modified: November 28th, 2017 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:complaintdonegalDonegal County Councildumpjim ferryrefuselast_img read more
