David Drumm 'not looking for much' in his bail conditions if extradited to Ireland

A legal expert says the former head of Anglo Irish Bank, David Drumm, is not looking for a lot in terms of bail conditions, to return to Ireland.

Larry Donnelly a law lecturer from NUI Galway was reacting to news that David Drumm has written to the Director for Public Prosecutions confirming that he will come home to stand trial here, if certain bail conditions are met.

Mr Drumm is currently in jail in America.

Mr Donnelly said: "With his lawyers looking to see 'okay if you are extradited on foot of an extraditoin warrant, it has to be a crime in the United States and here in Ireland'.

"And what I suspect they are trying to do is they are trying to limit down the amount of offences he can be charged with on foot of the extradition warrant.

"That is where I suspect the real legal wrangling is going on."
