Mary: No trial error.

MARY Harney yesterday denied claims she had prejudiced a fair trial for former Taoiseach Charles Haughey.

A newspaper on Saturday said the Tanaiste had made "clear her view that the one-time Fianna Fail leader should spend time in prison". She was reported as saying: "I do, yes. He should be convicted."

But Mrs Harney said yesterday: "I think anybody that looks at the record will see that I wasn't talking about any proceedings before the courts.

"I was asked my opinion by the journalist in relation to the evidence given last week at the Moriarty Tribunal, particularly the opening statement of Mr Healy. We did not speak about any case, nor would I speak about any case."
