Fingleton ‘did not read’ files Michael Fingleton, former head of Irish Nationwide, argued that he should not be liable to repay a €5.5 million loan to AIB as he did not read the documents before signing them. However, Judge Marie Baker rejected his defence last week and said AIB was entitled to summary judgment against him for the amount owed, the Sunday Times reports.

He is some gobber :)

Well Phil Hogan's little kock$ucker Alan Kelly along with the full might and support of Fine Gael had no problem is rushing through legislation to bring attachment orders to rob money from the most vulnerable and poorest in society for their crony stuffed company of IW so I am sure they will have absolutely no problems in putting their dirty little hands into fingers Fingleton's pockets and grab the loot he rewarded himself, back from him for the tax payer! I am sure Min. Noonan can easily enact legislation, he does of course have previous experience of acting as a low life thug when he stole money from private pension funds!

It's interesting that we were told that if you pay peanuts you get monkeys. Pay millions and you get ignorance and amnesia.

There you go then, who paid off Fine Gael? Otherwise I am sure they would have enacted emergency legislation as soon as they got in power to extract the loot that the likes of Fingleton received!

Kevin Cardiff even got a promotion as well as pension entitlements.

That pretty much sums up how the Irish institutional state deals with failure.

AIB and Fingers Fingleton, they have a CEO vacancy coming up, am surprised they did not offer Fingers the job on the spot, Fingers was always there to help out with some of their favoured "over borrowed" customers, keep all the balls up in the air.

Amazed AIB even had him in Court, if the State was not the owner, would never have happened, wonder how long this case has been delayed.

Now they have a Judgment let's see how they enforce it or will it be registered on some property to await his death.

He'll be in good company soon so....

The Irish Times has learned that these include Taoiseach Enda Kenny, who led Fine Gael in opposition at the time; former taoiseach Bertie Ahern; former tánaiste Mary Harney; and John Gormley, who led the Green Party in coalition with Fianna Fáil.
Taoiseach and Michael Fingleton being called to Banking Inquiry

Maybe the Taoiseach will tell us why he was calling private banks to give them a briefing on possible Government policy....

Not so sure, Tony lost his power as his control of INM was eroded gradually by DOB, who is now the fat controller, plenty want to stick daggers in Tony's back as he leaves the building.

They want to get Fingers to appear at the Inquiry, they had better get security on Nationwide's records, a flood is to be expected.

Fingers will have the place packed to the rafters, they could sell tickets now with himself and Bertie appearing.

The O'Reillys have one redeeming feature.

None of them are as detestable or as toxic as the pompous git who replaced them.

Why was Fingleton even allowed to take such a pathetic case to court, wasting court time and AIBs(our) money

Would think Fingers was trying to front up to AIB, on the basis he knows where bodies are buried, try to get them to back down and write off the debt, Fingers will not lie down and take this, reckon there is frantic negotiations between solicitors out the back, whatever Fingers has made out of the INBS he has no intention of giving it up.

Have said it before they should pull his son into this.

Irish Nationwide admits to widespread breaches - RTÉ News


Will all come to nothing unless they go after Fingers and his family personally and strip them of all assets, there are several cases against Fingers and probably many others pending, the State/Rev could sort it all out fairly quickly.
"The Central Bank inquiry will continue into people who were concerned in the management of INBS, to establish whether certain persons who were concerned in the management of the building society participated in the commission of the breaches"

I.E To establish whether anybody that worked in Nationwide was actually to blame, or whether the faults were-here we go again-"Systemic" and it all 'just happened' and nobody was to blame, as is usually the way in Ireland.
