Drumm’s Brother Says Suggestion Former Anglo Boss Fled Ireland ‘nonsense’


The brother of the former chief executive of Anglo Irish Bank David Drumm says its a nonsense to suggest he fled the country.

Kevin Drumm said it was always his brother’s intention to make his home in America.

Mr Drumm has been held in a US prison since he was arrested at his Massachusetts home in October, after an extradition request from Ireland.

He is wanted to face 33 charges before the Irish courts – relating to his time in charge of Anglo Irish Bank.

His brother Kevin says in hindsight, it would have been better if David had come home earlier.

“David is a much, much loved and adored member of our family” he said.

“He is one of the nicest people that you’re ever going to meet”.

“Anybody that he’s ever met in his lifetime has come away – not only impressed with him and having a great deal of respect for him – but actually expressing love for the man”.

“David is a very good person” he added.
