10 May 2016: The recent case of Kevin McGeever highlights the lengths that some people will go to try and to stop their creditors pursuing them. Mr McGeever is an Irish Property Developer who faked his own kidnapping in order to avoid investors to whom he owed a considerable amount of money following the economic crash in Eire.
He claimed to have been abducted at gunpoint and held in a steel container, possibly underground, by his captors. His statements prompted a six week investigation by the Gardai which involved more than 3,000 man hours. When Mr McGeever's story was found to be false he was convicted in April of wasting police time and received a two year suspended prison sentence.
