Ó Muilleoir asks Hamilton whether he has contacted PSNI over RHI allegations
Sinn Féin's Mairtín Ó Muilleoir has written to DUP economy minister Simon Hamilton to ask if his department has contacted the PSNI over allegations around the RHI scheme.
The Finance Minister said:
"Further allegations in relation to the RHI scheme were made recently in the media which raise further serious questions about the operation of the scheme.
"It was alleged that some participants in the RHI scheme could have claimed more money than was theoretically possible.
"This gives rise to concerns about potentially fraudulent behaviour.
"I have now written to DUP economy minister Simon Hamilton to ask him whether, in response to these allegations, he has reported these cases to the PSNI for investigation."
