Listen: Sinn Fein Proposes Bill To Jail Bankers Convicted Of Lying To The Central Bank.

: 02/14/2018 - 12:46

Bankers could get jail time for lying under a new Sinn Féin bill.

It would make it an offence to lie to the Central Bank, with a maximum punishment of five years in jail.

The government won't oppose the bill when it comes through the Dáil later.

Sinn Féin TD Pearse Doherty says bankers need to face more serious sanctions than are currently in place.
