FIANNA FAIL HAVE TO PUT THEIR HANDS UP OVER AIB CLOSURES – HARTE

first_imgSenator Jimmy Harte says the statement by Charlie Mc Conalogue TD criticising the AIB closures shows that real effects of the policies of the previous government.“We read today that there is €100 million in property in Donegal in NAMA. Effectively the tax payer is now responsible for the liabilities of these properties. This is a direct result of the reckless cosy relationship between FF and many developers as pointed out in the Reglin Watson Report.“The closure of these AIB branches and the job losses could have been avoided had FF not engaged in the mortgaging of the country,” he said. He added that it’s really time that Fianna Fail put their hands up and accept their role in the economic mess.“In the week that the Government could borrow on the Bond Market again it is important to remind the public that no one would lend this country money two years ago. It’s an improvement and should be welcomed,” he said. Senator Jimmy Harte FIANNA FAIL HAVE TO PUT THEIR HANDS UP OVER AIB CLOSURES – HARTE was last modified: July 27th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Pearse Doherty TD calls for urgent regulation of receivers

first_imgSinn Féin Finance spokesperson Pearse Doherty TD has come out in support of small businesses, tenants and homeowners in his call for the regulation of receivers.The Donegal TD has expressed his frustration that years after he first raised the issue of unregulated practices that no action has been taken.Deputy Doherty says the idea is still being kicked around working groups and draft reports and has called for it to be put on the political agenda in the Dáil’s Autumn session. He said: “The lack of regulation of receivers is an issue that is raised with me on an ongoing basis. Small businesses, tenants and homeowners all find themselves dealing with receivers in difficult circumstances.“Unlike liquidators and examiners there is practically no regulation of this group of people.”Deputy Doherty said he has been in contact with many businesses , tenants and others unhappy with how the receivers appointed have acted.“The allegations range from feeling intimidated by hired agents of the receivers, problems related to the taxation arrangements under receivership and accusations that the receivers are undermining the potential survival of businesses and simply acting in effect as liquidators.” This issue has been ongoing for years, said Mr Doherty, as he called for urgent action:“In January 2016 the then Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald wrote to me after I raised the lack of regulation in the Dáil to say that the Company Law Review Group was looking at the issue.“Now two and a half years later the new Minister has informed me that a Working Group on Receivers is discussing the issue and hope to present a report soon.“To date, NAMA inform me, it has paid out €129m to receivers. Over this period the banks have employed receivers thousands of times- all without regulation.“This issue must be tackled urgently. Receivers must be brought fully under the regulatory system so that homeowners, businesses and tenants can exercise their rights.” Pearse Doherty TD calls for urgent regulation of receivers was last modified: July 18th, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:bankingFinancePearse Doherty TDreceiverslast_img read more
