UCD’s ‘unlawful’ payments now estimated at €6m – The Irish Times – Fri, Jan 21, 2011

UCD MADE unauthorised payments of approximately €6 million to staff that will have to be refunded to the exchequer, the chief executive of the Higher Education Authority has said.

As I said yesterday, the payments may have been unauthorised, but it does not necessarily follow that they will have to be refunded.
