I missed it so am in shock when I read his comments re BOI staff. Why would he make this statement at this hearing? Why do it in such a public manner instead of advising the staff themselves? Did he give any reasons for making this statement?
Padraic said he is not taking BOI staff as clients for the simple reason that it may affect their employment. He said the cases were on his shoulders. I got the impression he is fighting the case without paying clients.
He did go on to explain how he was dealing with a staff tracker issue and that the bank were arguing in one situation an MFA superseded the original contract but in a non bank staff case they were using the opposite logic.
I do hope that in the event trackers are returned that Padraic will be fairly compensated for his work. I certainly will be making a voluntary contribution.
