The Wrong Prisoner

Catherine Teeling a 64 year old grandmother has been jailed for four months. The horrific crime that earned her this bout of incarceration was a failure to pay a fine of 4,000 Euros.

A country ravished by the unethical behaviour of bankers, to which it has for the most part turned a blind eye, can nevetheless imprison people whose misdemeanours pale by comparison.

Mrs Teeling who only six months ago found her sister dead after a fall from an apartment owed a fine resulting from a breach of casual trading laws.

The jails are filling up with the wrong people while those who should be under lock and key are in charge of the country's financial health.
