Sean Quinn claims IBRC conducting vendetta against him – Courts, National News
FORMER billionaire Sean Quinn has been made a “scapegoat”, he has claimed.
He also insisted that he believed he would be jailed.
He again insisted that his family does not owe Anglo the money it is now claiming back, saying that €2.34bn of the €2.8bn loans given to them are “tainted with illegality”.
However, Mike Aynsley, the boss of the Irish Bank Resolution Corp – the new name for Anglo – tells the paper the blame for court proceedings rests with Mr Quinn.
“Sean Quinn is being unreasonable in his assessment of the bank’s intentions,” he said.
“He has chosen to disregard the court process and is progressing down a path of duplicitous action,” he added, arguing Mr Quinn has misappropriated “what are in effect state assets”.
“I felt very disappointed that I had to be put in a position that I had to dissipate assets … that is not in my DNA,” says Mr Quinn, who insists he deserves public gratitude. “There are few companies in the history of the state that have contributed more to the Irish government, taxpayer and people than I have,” he says. “Overall, I don’t think that I owe the Irish taxpayer any apology.”
