The name Jonathan Sugarman might be familiar to you but even if it isn't, it should be after today.

The financial whistleblower, who resigned from his position as an executive of Unicredit Bank to shine a light on irregularities at the bank ahead of the financial crash, today spoke at the Oireachtas Committee on Finance and detailed how his life was "utterly destroyed" by the move.

"Official Ireland has absolutely and completely destroyed the lives of every single whistleblower who has come forward, from whatever walk of life they've come. Those with their hands on the levers of power are immune, while those who do the right things have their lives ruined."

His evidence has sparked a strong reactive on Twitter, with many praising his courage in speaking out.
