'Amazement' over Siteserv review
25 Apr 2015 16:04
Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin has said it was with amazement that he learned today that KPMG was involved in the Siteserv deal and another division of KPMG has been asked to review the transaction, along with other deals.

-
He said the perception of the conflict of interest was all wrong.
-
He said the investigation was not independent and he again called for a commission of investigation, adding that he believes the terms of reference are too narrow.
-
Mr Martin said the former chairman of IBRC Alan Dukes was "overly arrogant" in terms of his dismissive attitude of public servants in the Department of Finance in terms of him describing their knowledge of the banking system.
-
He said "a bit of humility all round would not go astray".
-
He again said it was not clear on what basis Minister for Finance Michael Noonan viewed it as the best deal.
-
It comes as former chairman of the Irish Bank Resolution Corporation Alan Dukes said the mindset of the Department of Finance has been one of hostility towards the bank since its inception.

-
-
Speaking on RTÉ's The Business, Mr Dukes said when Anglo Irish Bank was nationalised and became the IBRC some people in the Department of Finance retained the view that the new administration put in place was the enemy.
-
He said the Department of Finance never appeared to be able to draw the line between where it had a role to play in the running of the bank and where it did not.
