Kenny must be held accountable for Siteserv delay – FF Leader
Fianna Fáil Leader Micheál Martin TD has condemned the Taoiseach for burying the Inquiry into the sale of Siteserv until after the General Election.
His comments come following confirmation that the inquiry will not now report until at least April 2016.
Deputy Martin commented, “The failure to get any answers about the controversy of Siteserv’s sale and subsequent sales by IBRC before the General Election is deeply troubling and fits entirely with the Taoiseach’s agenda.
“From day one, the Government has sought to misdirect and mislead in response to legitimate inquiries about the details and circumstances of this sale and subsequent sales. This process of foot dragging has delivered just one result – ensuring that no details would emerge before a General Election.
“I do not believe this delay is a consequence of mistakes; I believe it was what the Government has been seeking to achieve since this issue first emerged.
“While the Taoiseach may have been successful in delaying the outcome of an inquiry, he must at least answer for the delay.”
