Arrest The Bankers!

PROTESTERS at the Central Bank in Dublin on Saturday demanded that senior bankers from bailed-out Anglo Irish Bank face an inquiry and criminal charges where appropriate.

Speaking at the event, Sinn Féin’s Paul Donnelly said the public had a right to know just how much those in Government over the last five years – Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael, Labour and the Green Party – knew about the tapes.

“They have become a coalition of parties who are protecting the bankers,” he said.

Donnelly said Alan Dukes – the Anglo Public Interest Director and former Fine Gael leader – “sat on his hands” despite being aware of the recordings.

Donnelly told a journalist from Sinn Féin’s party newspaper An Phoblacht that there is a growing demand among the public that senior bankers face the full rigour of the law.
