Gardaí search Anglo Irish Headquarters

The Irish Transport Minister, Noel Dempsey is talking about “economic treason” in the shenanigans at the Anglo Irish Bank – whether that’s a ‘charge’ which anyone will actual face is another matter. But search warrants were issued by Dublin District Court and this morning Gardaí attached to the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement began searches of the bank’s Dublin headquarters.

The warrant allows officers seize books and enter premises. Eight gardaí, a detective inspector, two detective sergeants and five detective gardaí are already assigned to the offices of the Director of Corporate Enforcement and have been investigating the affairs of Anglo Irish Bank. The Garda Commissioner assigned another eight to assist in the investigation, including another detective inspector and two sergeants. They along with staff from the Director’s office are carrying out today’s searches.
