Number of tracker victims at AIB jumps to over three thousand – Doherty

19 January, 2017 - by Pearse Doherty TD

Sinn Féin Finance spokesperson Pearse Doherty has said the numbers of victims of the tracker mortgage scandal now stands at over 3,000 at AIB alone, up from the previously stated figure of 2,600.

Deputy Doherty said:

“AIB have confirmed to the Oireachtas Finance Committee that they have now counted 3,003 cases of people being moved off tracker mortgage rates, with over 700 yet to receive a letter of redress from the bank. Previously, it had admitted that there were 2,600 cases at the bank. This latest news sharpens the need for the Central Bank to impose a strict deadline on the ongoing industry wide examination.

“Many victims have been in contact with me to express their ongoing frustration at the lack of progress in their cases. It is clear we are now looking at a major banking scandal affecting up to 15,000 families.

“I will be bringing this issue to the Dáil next week looking for support from all sides for a call to support the victims.”
