Leo Carjacked by CIE Cabal

Posted on: July 29th, 2012

CIE is bust. Last week its cheques were on the brink of bouncing. How did it come to this? How could a company with an annual subsidy of €278m find itself on the verge of insolvency?

There is ‘something of the dark’ about CIE. Or at least a very thick fog embracing the murky company. It has always wrapped itself in a blanket of secrecy.

Probably for good reason.
