We were expecting to have Sean Dunne’s statement of financial affairs today, but the request for a hearing earlier this week may indicate Sean will seek an extension or perhaps even some privacy. As of 2pm Dublin time, the statements haven’t been filed, but if they become available later today on the US court system PACER – subscription only and available to US citizens – they will be made available here.
Meanwhile we do have one document that was filed yesterday and on the face of it, it is not an important document. It’s from the bankruptcy trustee to the bankruptcy court informing the court that it has mailed the so-called Rule 2004 application to Credit Suisse. This is the application for the subpoena which would compel Credit Suisse to submit itself to questioning by the bankruptcy trustee and also to disclose relevant documentation.
However, what is noteworthy is that Credit Suisse has been given a copy of the subpoena application in New York and in Zurich, Switzerland. We know that Credit Suisse was involved in the Geneva apartment transaction whereby Gayle and Sean Dunne were parties to a purchase of a €4m apartment. We don’t know if that is the reason the bankruptcy trustee wants to question Credit Suisse but the options here are limited, especially as Credit Suisse was not named as a creditor in Sean’s bankruptcy filing.
