Paul Kelly’s assets as well as those belonging to his wife Patricia and their son Tim have been frozen by court order.

Mr Justice Paul Gilligan was told the founder of the suicide prevention charity Console is currently an in-patient at a psychiatric unit.

The latest orders granted against the Kellys restrain them from disposing of or dealing with their assets. Tim Kelly, son of Paul and Patricia Kelly, was only added to proceedings today.

They have also been instructed to swear affidavits listing all directorships and companies established in relation to Console and hand over details and passwords for PayPal accounts linked to the charity as well as details of any transfer of assets in the past six years.

Patricia Kelly was the only defendant in court.

Her husband Paul has been admitted to a psychiatric unit, while his sister Joan McKenna was given a short adjournment to allow inquiries to be made into her claim she was never a director of Console.

The court also heard over 300 folders, 50 binders, 25 cheque books and a computer were taken from a storage unit in Naas yesterday by interim CEO David Hall.

Mr Hall was granted permission to break the unit's lock after Paul and Patricia Kelly were spotted making deliveries there last week.
