Those investigating shady operations at Anglo Irish Bank need to get their finger out – O’Brien

28 May, 2011 - by Jonathan O'Brien TD

Sinn Féin Spokesperson on Justice, Jonathan O’Brien TD has said that he is sick and shocked to hear that the evidence of important witnesses in the Anglo Irish Bank investigation has still to be taken.

Deputy O’Brien was referring to the comments of the Director of Public Prosecutions James Hamilton, made today at the Annual National Prosecutors' Conference at Dublin Castle in which he claimed that a lack of resources wasn’t an issue in this investigation.

Deputy O’Brien said:

“This would be an absolute comical situation if it wasn’t for the detrimental impact of Anglo Irish Bank on the people of Ireland.

“I am sick and shocked to hear today’s comments from the Director of Public Prosecutions.

“If resources are not the issue, why have important witnesses not been questioned? And why are we not further down the road towards necessary prosecutions?

“The people investigating these shady operations really need to get the finger out.

“I hope this isn’t another case of those in the establishment having more rights than ordinary people.”
