13 May, 2011 - by Jonathan O'Brien TD

Sinn Féin Justice Spokesperson Jonathan O’Brien has given a cautious welcome to the Criminal Justice Bill which aims to tackle White Collar Crime.

Deputy O’Brien said he has some concerns with some of the measures contained in the Bill but welcomes any legislation that speeds up the prosecution of White Collar Crime.

Speaking today as the Bill was published Deputy O’Brien said:

“Sinn Féin has long been calling for measures to be introduced to tackle White Collar Crime and with that in mind I cautiously welcome this Bill.

“There are some measures included in the Bill which my party takes issue with but we will deal with these by way of amendments to the Bill in the Dáil.

“However, any Bill that speeds up the prosecution of White Collar Crime is to be welcomed.” ENDS
