AIB – A “Sound” Culture?

Posted on: October 19th, 2004

Nobody believes the AIB has ‘a sound culture’. Speaking to the CEO and Chairman of AIB at the Joint Committee on Finance and the Public Service, I said the public are suspicious of AIB

Everybody has seen what has happened to AIB and they know it does not have a sound culture from the evidence they see. They see offshore accounts and are aware of the DIRT issue. Mr. Gleeson did not answer the question on that, but perhaps he could answer this question on DIRT, which is fundamental. Is it fair that people who evaded their tax in a small way should have been pilloried in public in the way that they were while the people who encouraged them should not have been and, in many cases, should still be in their jobs or even promoted? Is that reasonable?
