A company of businessman Jim Kennedy is seeking damages from the Criminal Assets Bureau (Cab) claiming it had no right to seek a court order which froze the ownership of lands in Carrickmines, Dublin, for several years.
Jackson Way Properties Ltd (JWPL), a Birmingham-registered company, claims a High Court freezing order obtained in July 2006 was wrongfully obtained, initially over 108 acres, and later over 17.6 acres rezoned in 1997 from agriculture to industrial use.
