Jury considering verdict in Dublin money-laundering trial

The jury in the trial of a former car salesman accused of money laundering the proceeds of crime will resume deliberations this morning.

Thirty-eight-year-old James Naylor, of Forest View, Pine Forest Road, Glencullen, Co Dublin, has pleaded not guilty to seven charges of laundering the proceeds of criminal activities on dates between March 2001 and June 2003.

The jury will today resume deliberations on five of the seven counts after Justice Michael White directed them to find Mr Naylor not guilty of two of the charges at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court.

The court heard that Mr Naylor had a business arrangement to sell cars for Michael Byrne, who was jailed for six years in the UK in April 2003 for laundering the proceeds of drug trafficking.
