McKay to convene emergency meeting to discuss allegations
Chair of the Assembly Finance Committee, Sinn Féin MLA Daithí McKay, has said he intends to convene an emergency sitting of the committee to consider its response to allegations made by Mick Wallace TD on the floor of Leinster House yesterday.
Mr McKay said;
"These are very serious allegations and need to be fully and thoroughly investigated as a matter of urgency. If there is any suggestion of illegality then the police must thoroughly investigate the allegations.
"The Finance committee will also want to look into these claims given the significance of the sale of these NAMA assets for the local economy.
“As part of this examination I would expect Cerberus to appear before the committee.
“I would intend to call on NAMA officials and Mick Wallace to appear before the committee and the law firm involved to elaborate on their recent statement on the matter.
"I will be calling the committee together at the earliest opportunity to consider these very serious allegations in the interests of transparency and accountability."
