The Central Bank published a statement in response to the decision of the High Court to enable the NTMA to begin a process to transfer the deposits and corresponding assets held by Anglo Irish Bank to a third party financial institution. The Minister of Finance has confirmed that deposits remain protected and that the terms and conditions of deposit accounts remain the same and will be protected in any transfer. There will be no change as to how depositors can deal with their accounts. Deposits can be accessed as normal through the relevant institutions and depositors can continue to do business as normal. No action is required by depositors.
