Codd Released From Mountjoy After Court Appearance

CODD RELEASED FROM MOUNTJOY AFTER COURT APPEARANCE

Former Wexford hurler Paul Codd appeared before the High Court yesterday after he was arrested for failing to co-operate with bankruptcy proceedings against him.

The Court was told he has now promised to fully co-operate in the future.

The former Wexford Hurling captain was arrested on Saturday at his home on foot of a warrant issued on the 14th of October for failing to co-operate with the official assignee in bankruptcy regarding his assets and liabilities.

Mr Codd told Mr Justice Kevin Cross in the High Court that he was now prepared to co-operate with Mr Chris Lehane – the court-appointed official whose role it is to assist bankrupts in their obligations to their creditors – “to the best of my ability.”

He was then allowed to return to his family yesterday after spending the weekend in Mountjoy Prison.

Last March the 37 year-old was adjudicated bankrupt by the High Court arising from his failure to satisfy a judgment secured against him in 2011 for €530,000.

The matter was adjourned until the 20th of January.

Mr Codd’s debts, combined with those of his now dissolved company, Paul Codd Ltd, are estimated to be €4.9 million.
