A HIGHLY REGARDED GP who dodged the payment of almost €100,000 in income tax has been jailed for 16 months. Dr Bassam Naser (51), of Howth Road, Sutton, Dublin, pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to two charges of delivering an incorrect return in connection with his income tax affairs for the years 2006 and 2007. The court heard that Naser had a hidden bank account into which he lodged 1,686 cheques that had been paid by his patients attending his clinic. He was due to pay almost €100,000 in income tax and now owes a further €200,000 in penalties and fees. He had a €100,000 cheque in court to pay the overdue tax. When evidence was first heard yesterday, Naser’s wife of 24 years, and mother to their seven children, stood in the body of the court crying and asked Judge Martin Nolan for “mercy” before she was escorted out by her husband.
The judge had adjourned the case overnight to consider the case and had remanded the doctor on continuing bail. Today Judge Nolan sentenced Naser to 16 months in prison after he described the offences as serious. “An efficient and good tax system is vital to a good society,” the judge said, adding that it allowed for much needed services to be provided to the community. He said Naser “failed abysmally” and was “morally reprehensible”. “He is a very intelligent man. He knew what he was doing was wrong.
He created a mechanism to avoid paying his taxes,” Judge Nolan continued. The judge also noted that Revenue was reliant on the honesty of people who are self-assessed. “It is the luck of the draw as to whether you are audited and I suspect audits are infrequent so Revenue are relying on the honesty of the tax payer,” the judge said. He acknowledged that Dr Naser had “excellent mitigation” and accepted that there were “multiple impressive references from his patients”. He said that Naser was a good doctor and an advocate for his patients and that he was a community man who continued to do charity work for his native Palestine.
Judge Nolan said he was conscious of the doctor’s family circumstances and the fact that he had repaid €100,000 to Revenue but added “He knew what he was doing and yet he persisted”. Secret bank account Gerard Cosgrave, an assistant principal officer with the Revenue Commissioners, earlier told Tony McGillicuddy BL, prosecuting, that Naser was audited in 2008 and failed to disclose a bank account he held with Bank of Ireland. In October 2009 he completed a statement of affairs outlining his assets and liabilities and again didn’t advise officers of this additional bank account. In April 2013 Bank of Ireland informed Revenue about the account and provided officers with statements. Cosgrave said that 986 cheques totalling €88,762 were lodged to that account in 2006 and a further 700 cheques, totalling €71,189, were lodged into the account in 2007.
