THE CEANN COMHAIRLE will likely be unable to keep an expensive watch given to him by a government official while he was visiting the United Arab Emirates (UAE) last year.

Seán Ó Fearghaíl was given a Rolex Milgauss watch by his counterpart, the President of the Federal National Council of the UAE, Dr Al Qaibasi, when in the country in late 2018.

Ministers or government officials must notify the Secretary General if they receive a gift which exceeds €650 in value.

Mansoor Uddin (41), a married father-of-three who attacked three young women in two weeks, had his case adjourned on Tuesday for a psychological report to be prepared. The court heard that, as part of his bail conditions, a female passenger was not permitted to be a front-seat passenger in his taxi. However, it has since been confirmed that Uddin had his licence to drive a taxi revoked on February 28 – the day he pleaded guilty to the offences.

In turn, the Secretary General must inform the Standards in Public Office (Sipo) Commission what is done with the item in question, as set out under the Ethics Acts.

The watch given to Ó Fearghaíl is believed to cost about €7,700 – well exceeding the limit.

On 29 January 2019, the Ceann Comhairle wrote to Secretary General Martin Fraser to inform him about the watch and ask what he should do with it, documents released under the Freedom of Information Act show.

The Rolex was given to him while on official parliamentary business in the UAE at the end of October and start of November.

“I will await your formal instructions, as Secretary General of the Government, as to the arrangement of custody of this item,” Ó Fearghaíl wrote.

Watch may be sold

Fraser responded on 5 February, saying he would ask the Office of Public Works (OPW) “to arrange for a valuation of the item concerned”. He said he would contact Ó Fearghaíl’s private secretary Brian Prunty once this had been completed.

On 27 February, Prunty wrote to the Taoiseach’s office seeking an update on the matter, saying the Ceann Comhairle was “anxious to progress the matter”. In response, he was told the OPW wanted more information about the watch.

Prunty accordingly sent on details about the make of the watch as well as images of it.

UAE is place when you dont have job secure so banks no it, why some one will give loan to some if job is not secure.

If the watch is valued at over €650 as expected, the Secretary General will advise Ó Fearghaíl what to do with it in terms of “custody” or “disposal”.

If the latter option is chosen, the watch may be sold and the money used for charitable purposes.

A fighter pilot is missing after one of Japan's stealth jets went down in the Pacific Ocean - only the second crash in the plane's history. Wreckage has been found after the F-35A disappeared from radar on Tuesday night, 84 miles (135km) from the Misawa air base in the north of the country. The jet was in the air for 28 minutes when contact was lost. It was at the front of a group of four planes on a training flight when it sent an "aborting practice" signal, said defence minister Takeshi Iwaya.
