The Oireachtas Banking Inquiry has today agreed to redact the written statement received from Johnny Ronan.
The Committee received a formal request from Mr Ronan to remove the final phrase from his witness statement as published.
The Committee normally rejects applications to amend statements once they have been submitted. However, in this case, the phrase at issue contains no evidential value and has the potential to continue to cause offence. In these exceptional circumstances the Joint Committee has agreed to the redaction of the last line of Mr Ronan’s witness statement.
All media enquiries in relation to the Oireachtas Banking Inquiry should be addressed to:
