ECB gags State on IBRC liquidation | Irish Examiner

senior official in the Department of Finance told the Irish Examiner they were under strict instructions from the ECB not to release any details to the public.

“What they [ECB] have said from an early stage is that if there is any release, at all, then all negotiations are off. They do not want to discuss this in any forum, other than that of a member state and the ECB council,” he said.

The department has received about 16 freedom of information requests in relation to the IBRC liquidation and is now considering adopting a policy position that would allow it to refuse all applications for the release of information.


why are the ECB requesting this ?
have they something to hide ?
anyone, any suggestions ?

why are we not allowed see the detail, considering we put 34 billion in IBRC

Presumably if they are denying FOI requests, then I'd guess they have something to hide.

Michael Noonan, Ireland's Minister for Finance, refused on the floor of Dail Eireann to disclose details of money transfers concerning IBRC immmediately prior to it being liquidated.

As far as I'm aware the Irish taxpayer owned that bank at that point.

It appears that it is not only the ECB that refuse to disclose details but our Quisling politicians also.

From about an hour ago,

@BarrosoEU: The resurgence of populism and nationalism threatens to destroy the dream made real. The indifference of many pro-Europeans is also a risk.

Translation - shut the fck up you populist proles,

A ranting idiot. If he hates the EU so much why is he sitting in its institutions making a tidy income in MEP salaries and expenses? The man's a hypocrite!
So you'd prefer if there was no dissenting voices in the Europarl?

I'd prefer if he showed some conviction and abstained. The man's a raving hypocrite taking the Commission's Shilling, so to speak.

Thats because its another Cyprus style Bail in! ARF holders wiped out, ARFs not covered by any guarantee. Irish gov told to shut it and not to release any info or 'deal' is off.

Of course I could be imagining it.

Policy position to be reached is to deny all FOI requests.

one of these days someone is going to notice the amount of eastern european banking 'gentlemen' who graduated from the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development outreach and education courses after the wall came down.

Now there's an interesting link with EU institutions and the ECB itself which would turn a few people pale should the rocks start being overturned..
