Sinn Féin asks if Government has been advised to call in IMF

10 November, 2010


Sinn Féin Dáil Finance Spokesperson Arthur Morgan has asked the Government if it has been advised to call in the International Monetary Fund.

Deputy Morgan was reacting to a call from Goldman Sachs for Ireland to become subject to an IMF designed programme funded through the European Stability Fund.

He said: “Given that Goldman Sachs International Chairman Peter Sutherland was asked to advise the Government on designing an austerity programme, have they also been advised by this major Anglo Irish bondholder to call in the IMF?

“And given their obvious enthusiasm for following the bondholders’ agenda in relation to massive cutbacks will they capitulate to this demand to surrender what is left of our economic sovereignty?” ENDS
