Drug dealer David Waldron receives €8,000 in legal aid in the CAB fight over an unsettled €2.9 million


Criminal Assets Bureau target David Waldron has won a free legal aid bid to pay a forensic accountant in his lawsuit with the agency over $3.2 million in unsolved assets.

Chief Alex Owens agreed to allocate an €8,000 budget for the number crunching specialist to examine the CAB file.

The areas covered will be Waldron’s bank accounts, home purchases and “lifestyle analysis,” for which his attorney argued fees would total the equivalent of $12,000.

Lawyers working for CAB denied the application, saying the estimate was overstated, both in terms of duration and hourly rate.

Judge Owens said he would award €8,000 for the accounting report because of the time it took him to read the filing.

He ordered all new affidavits from the accountant’s assessment to be made available to the CAB by September 30 and adjourned the case until October.

Earlier this year, it emerged during another CAB hearing that Waldron and his wife, Charlene, claimed they were too broke to hire a legal team, despite hosting a lavish christening just weeks earlier.

CAB claimed the couple misled the court over their request for free legal aid in their €2.9 million assets dispute, claiming they misled the court.

It also emerged at that hearing that the couple were filing for pandemic unemployment benefits, which they were not entitled to, and Waldron was dealing in cars, according to the CAB.

CAB had appealed the decision in 2020 to provide free legal assistance to Waldron and his wife Charlene, who is not involved in crime, in their legal battle over their assets.

Waldron and his brother Christopher – “Git” – were close associates of notorious gang boss Eamon “The Don” Dunne, along with brothers Wayne and Alan “Fatpuss” Bradley.

Christopher is also the subject of a pending investigation by the CAB.

The case against David Waldron involves three properties in Dublin, Kildare and Wexford, including ‘Darview’, a luxury villa.

CAB says the three properties were purchased with proceeds of crime and Waldron failed to adequately explain a credible alternative source for the money.

CAB suspects Waldron is still making money from crime, the court heard.

Waldron, through his attorneys, has denied the CAB’s claims that his money came from drugs and said his income was obtained through legal channels.
