An investigation into suspected tax evasion targeted four former partners at Belfast accountancy firm KPMG in a publicity stunt, a court has been told.
HM Revenue and Customs misled judges into granting warrants to search the men’s homes and offices it was alleged.
The claims were made as Eamonn Donaghy, Jon D’Arcy, Paul Hollway and Arthur O’Brien won permission to challenge the legality of the permits.
They were arrested in November but have not been charged with any wrongdoing.
At the time, KPMG said it was co-operating with the investigation and had placed the men on “administrative leave”.
