DRUMM JAIL INTERVIEW: I'm coming home to tell the whole story
"I have been living a nightmare for the past eight years"
It is exactly 120 days since David Drumm was arrested and detained by United States marshals on October 10 of last year. Since then, the 49-year-old has remained silent in prison in Boston, pending his extradition hearing. The former chief executive of Anglo Irish Bank has been a figure of public vilification since leaving Ireland to live in the US in 2009, not long after his bank was nationalised. He is now on the brink of returning home. He has instructed his US attorneys to “explore all opportunities” to speed up his passage to Ireland, and plans to waive his rights to challenge his extradition.
