Taoiseach Micheál Martin will make a very brief appearance at the tribunal examining the controversial sale of a company by the State-owned former Anglo Irish Bank.

It’s the first time a sitting Taoiseach will be a witness at a tribunal since Bertie Ahern was quizzed about his personal finances 13 years ago. The fallout resulted in his resignation as taoiseach.

Mr Martin will take time out next Thursday to give testimony at the Commission of Investigation into the sale of the utility company Siteserv to businessman Denis O’Brien.
