Trial date set for Saoirse Holdings

A trial date has been set in September for a company charged with 29 counts of making a false presentation.

Saoirse Holdings Ltd. faces the charges from dates in 2010, 2011 and 2012 following allegations that it falsely purported on work permit applications that several employees were or were intended to be enrolled in a pension plan.

Attorney Clyde Allen told Summary Court on Monday that the company, represented by director Harry Lalli, had suffered a misinterpretation of the wording on the work permit form.

Mr. Allen asked the court if a trial could be avoided.

“We don’t need to call 29 witnesses,” Mr. Allen said. “I don’t need any witnesses, the documents speak for themselves.”

Magistrate Valdis Foldats set a trial date for Sept. 8.

The trial had originally been set for two days but the court agreed that two days would not be needed.
