Ray Burke

Senior Fianna Fáil politician in Ireland and member of Dáil Éireann, Raphael Burke served as a Minister in the Governments of Charles J. Haughey and Bertie Ahern. He resigned from government and from Dáil Éireann in 1997, amid allegations of corruption involving property developers.

In an interim report of the subsequent Flood Tribunal[?] he was unambiguously judged by Flood to be "corrupt". He is currently being investigated by the Garda Siochana[?] (Irish police) and the Criminal Assets Bureau[?] and is expected to face prosecution and a possible prison sentence.
