Policing Chairman's resignation from Ivy Wood "appropriate" and "precautionary"

The Chairman of the Policing Board, Desmond Rea, yesterday resigned as a non-executive director of Ivy Wood Properties, a subsidiary of Harcourt Developments – following Phil Flynn’s resignation from Harcourt, one more resignation to add to the previous list. In his statement Desmond Rea said “I would like to make it entirely clear that I know of no information whatsoever to link Ivy Wood Properties or the development in Belfast to any wrongdoing.”.. but that he “could not afford to bring publicity, however ill-founded, to the door of the Policing Board.”

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
