IBRC commission of enquiry must be adequately supported and resourced – Doherty

2 June, 2016 - by Pearse Doherty TD


Following a meeting a Taoiseach regarding the ongoing enquiry into IBRC and sale of assets, Sinn Féin TD and Finance spokesperson Pearse Doherty has said that government need to move now to fully resource the commission and enable it with the necessary legal powers to fully investigate the actions of IBRC and ensure that this state got the optimum value for tax payers’ money.

The Donegal TD said: 

“The Commission was established almost a year ago. The operation of the commission has been hampered by the lack of powers and resources and has been unable to cast a full light on the operation of IBRC and the sale of assets at a greatly reduced price.

“The wind up of IBRC and the sale of assets all happened under the watch of Enda Kenny and Michael Noonan.

“For the past 6 months, there has been ongoing meeting with an Taoiseach on this matter and little progress has been made. 

“The government need to move now to fully resource the commission and enable it with the necessary legal powers to fully investigate the actions of IBRC and ensure that this state got the optimum value for tax payers’ money.”
