Irish Banking Enquiry - 2

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Government's convoluted, evasive plans for a banking inquiry are a bucket of whitewash and waste of time. They insult the electorate who will bear the cost of the crisis without ever seeing and hearing exactly why and how it happened.

We need is a new type of inquiry which is a mix of tribunal and commission and provides for membership by politicians and others. It should have subpoena/discovery powers, take evidence under oath, make findings, exclude lawyers, be open to public and televised, have an independent chairperson, engage expert support staff, hold private hearings by exception, have power to refer to ODCE/DPP/Gardai and so on.

Letter published in Sunday Business Post on 31st January 2010. For a more detailed discussion on these proposals, see Irish Banking Enquiry.
