    These redacted papers have Kevin Carfiff's fingerprints all over them. Meanwhile he is, at this very moment, enjoying some Belgian chocolate biscuits and afternoon café au lait at the expense of the European Something-or-other Dept.

    Pearse Doherty manages to squeeze another document from the DOF under Freedom of Information. Refused access to a couple of dozen others though.
    Merrill Lynch told the government in 2008 the cost of bailing out the banks would only be a quarter of the €64 billion it eventually cost the taxpayer.The information has been disclosed by Department of Finance documents released to Sinn Féin finance spokesman Pearse Doherty in recent days.
    In a 45-page presentation to the Department of Finance on November 18th, 2008, Merrill Lynch estimated it would cost some €16.4 billion to fund a State rescue of the banks. The American-based bank was commissioned by the government to advise it as the banking crisis intensified during 2008, and to give advice on the €7 billion recapitalisation of banks in 2009.
    He said the Government was withholding many documents, notwithstanding an imminent inquiry into the banking crisis. “I sought a number of pieces of information about the banking crisis under Freedom of Information. Of the 24 documents I requested, 20 were denied. Six years after the banking collapse, the public deserves to know who knew what . . .”

    Lenehans phone records missing - try the phone company.
    Probably the biggest financial decision in the history of the state, no records, no accountability!!!
    When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation,
    since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes.
    Money has no motherland;
    financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain.
