Arrest Warrant Issued For Former Wexford Hurler Paul Codd

ARREST WARRANT ISSUED FOR FORMER WEXFORD HURLER PAUL CODD

The High Court has ordered former All-Ireland winning Wexford hurler Paul Codd to be arrested and brought before the court.

The order is as a result of his continuing refusal to co-operate with his bankruptcy.

On Monday Mr Justice Brian McGovern issued a warrant for Mr Codd’s arrest after being told that he had not complied with undertakings given last January to meet Chris Lehane, the court-appointed official in charge of his bankruptcy.

The 37 year-old, who was not in court, was jailed for a short period last December for his alleged non-compliance with the bankruptcy process.

In January, he gave undertakings to co-operate with Mr Lehane and return machinery leased to his now-dissolved company, Paul Codd Ltd.

Mr Lehane said three meetings were pre-arranged but all were cancelled by Mr Codd.

He also failed to return machinery leased by Friends First Finance or to return €500,000 worth of machinery leased by Deutsche Leasing Ireland, the court was told.

Mr Codd of Askinfarney, Clonroche, was adjudicated bankrupt in 2013 over his failure to satisfy a €530,000 judgment entered against him.

It followed his failure to complete the purchase of 46 acres at Askinfarney for approximately €800,000.
