Round up the usual suspects…..
5 September, 2009
This week the Public Enquiry Blog asked the question: How long before Ireland reaches accountability standards of Nigeria? The reason for the question was that “Nigeria, one of the most corrupt countries in the world, has arrested fifteen top bankers on charges of conspiracy and money laundering. The head of Nigeria’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission said that the bankers were taken into custody to make sure they didn’t leave the country as officials examined banks that have piled up billions in bad debts.”
So when will we in Ireland see a representative (or two) of our own dastardly bankers do the perp walk? To me, the answer’s clear. I will not be at all surprised if we see action (or something that has the appearance of action) against former Anglo-Irish executives just in time to help the Government in the run-up to the Lisbon referendum.
So mark the last week of September in your diaries.
