Investigations into Anglo-Irish Bank are at an advanced stage and a file will be sent to DPP shortly providing “some solace” during this bleak and troubling economic period.
This is the view of Fine Gael senator Fidelma Healy Eames who was reacting to a letter from the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement.
The letter, written by Paul Appleby, the director of corporate enforcement, said the investigations will be completed by the end of the year. “We expect to send at least one investigation file to the DPP by year-end with a number of others to follow in early 2011,” he wrote.
Sen Healy Eames said this is “some solace in light of the grim reality facing us with the IMF ultimately deciding our destiny”.
She added: “People need to know that the truth is being pursued and that justice will prevail, in so far as the law will enable, and that white collar criminals will end up in jail. That is fundamental for many people I meet.”
