“George Gibney, the former Irish national swimming coach who fled to America 22 years ago after eluding trial for allegedly raping and molesting under-age swimmers, was refused US citizenship in 2010.
The revelation was made by Charles R Breyer, a senior federal judge, during a Freedom of Information law case taken by Irvin Muchnick, an investigative journalist, who is seeking to obtain Gibney’s immigration file from the Department of Homeland Security.
Breyer, who viewed Gibney’s file in camera, said during a hearing of the case that the Dubliner, now living in Florida, ‘was not granted citizenship or permanent residency’ when he applied to the US Citizenship and Immigration Services seven years ago.”
The above is the lead passage of an article in the Sunday Times of London by Justine McCarthy.
