The Central Bank currently has a number of ongoing enforcement investigations arising out of the tracker mortgage examination.  These investigations are considering all possible angles, including potential individual culpability.  However the Central Bank has advised that it cannot comment further on any possible investigations into individuals without the risk of prejudicing the ongoing investigatory work.
