Probe into former Anglo Irish Bank leads to 60 charges before courts

The Office of Corporate Enforcement has finished the majority of their investigations into the former Anglo Irish Bank, leading to 60 charges being brought against a number of people in court.

The Director of Corporate Enforcement, Ian Drennan, said his office has submitted a large number of files to the Director of Public Prosecutions since it first started investigating the undisclosed extent of loans at the former bank in 2008.

The office's annual report for 2012 also shows that 19 company directors were disqualified last year, and 16 criminal convictions were brought in the District Court.

The office's Director, Ian Drennan, said they are now assisting the DPP with their inquiries into Anglo.

He said: "That's a very significant exercise, by virtue of the volume of material that was examined for the purposes of the investigation, because clearly the focus of disclosure exercise is much broader in that the exercise involves identifying all the material that could be potentially relevant to the defence."
