On RTÉ One - The Week in Politics Peadar Tóibín - Sinn Féin TD made the claim that the German government lobbied the ECB directly to prevent any write-downs at Irish banks to protect $57 billion of German money in Irish Banks.
Is that true? Can Peadar Tóibín show that this is actually the case? That would indeed grossly undermine the position of the ECB. Did the ECB act on behalf of a single country to protect its own bank? That's a scandal if it's true. The Irish government should sue the ECB now!
