Irish cabinet agrees to appeal Apple ruling

Irish Prime Minister and Fine Gael party leader, Enda Kenny, (L) heads a minority government, which relies on the support of the main opposition Fianna Fail partyIreland’s fragile minority government agreed Friday to recommend an appeal against the EU’s tax ruling on Apple but said it was recalling parliament early to debate the issue. The deal overcomes a split in cabinet surrounding the 13 billion euros ($15 billion) plus interest that the EU says Apple owes in back taxes, putting Ireland at the centre of a row between Europe and the United States. Apple chief Tim Cook has urged the government to appeal against the ruling to secure future investments but opinion polls have shown public support for Ireland taking the money and spending it on social services.
