Sutherland could use his influence to help tenants

From news reports it appears that many of the Tyrrelstown tenant victims of the Beltany ‘vampire squid’ are immigrants. Peter Sutherland was for many years the chairman of Goldman Sachs International, of which Beltany is a subsidiary.

Perhaps Mr Sutherland, now the UN special representative of the secretary-general for International Migration, might use his good offices on the tenants’ behalf.

Our ex-attorney general has been responsible for the creation of the Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD).

Might he use his considerable influence in the Tyrellstown affair?
