Too sick to tell the truth

I see former Taoiseach Albert Reynolds continues to enjoy a hale and hearty lifestyle (Nine News,12th report) despite been deemed unfit to give evidence at the Mahon Tribunal because he, apparently, suffers from a cognitive impairment.

His political colleague, the corrupt Haughey, successfully employed the ‘medical excuse’ for years in order to avoid accounting for his crimes.

As I recall, there was one occasion when Haughey was ‘too sick’ to give evidence but as soon as the ‘danger’ had passed he embarked on a world cruise. The State was more than generous in facilitating his lies.
