The Oireachtas Banking Inquiry has today published the next batch of witness statements received from non-attending witnesses.
Over the past number of weeks, the Committee has contacted a number of witnesses who may have information and material relevant to the terms of reference of the Inquiry with a series of questions and has published statements responding to those questions. The statements published today can be accessed here.
The final remaining written statement from Frank Browne is undergoing the relevant statutory process including a legal review of section 24 responses from a number of parties in relation to this statement. The statement will be published when this process is complete. Statements will also be published from witnesses who submitted evidence to the inquiry in responding to evidence which affected them which was given by other persons.
The Committee is now engaged on the final phase of its work programme which will lead to its final report. This involves final analysis and review of evidence, obtaining clarification of material evidence from witnesses, and compilation of books of core documents for publication with the final report. Today the Committee also published the first tranche of clarifications of material evidence from witnesses. This information has been posted as Clarification of Material Evidence under the relevant witness name on at the inquiry website at http://inquiries.oireachtas.ie/banking/evidence/
The Committee has also published its quarterly update on activity and expenditure which can be accessed here.
