Maximum co-operation needed North and South for investigation into Project Eagle - Adams
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams TD has repeated his demand for “the urgent establishment of a Commission of Investigation into the sale of Project Eagle” and urged “the Executive, Assembly, northern government departments and anyone with relevant information, to cooperate fully with any Commission of Investigation established by the Irish government”.
Speaking in Belfast today, at the opening of Gael Ionad Mhic Gioll, an Irish language youth and community hub, Gerry Adams said;
“Sinn Féin has consistently called for the establishment of a Commission of Investigation into NAMA’s sell-off of its northern loan book – Project Eagle.
“There is also a question mark over the stewardship of Finance Minister Michael Noonan, who ignored serious concerns about illegal or improper transactions in the sale of Project Eagle. Minister Noonan failed to stop the sale.
“It is now expected that the report by the Comptroller and Auditor General, due to be published tomorrow, will reveal the loss of hundreds of millions of euro from the sale of Project Eagle.
“In recent times we have had Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael and the DUP trying to stop investigations into these allegations.
“The recent BBC Broadcast of audio recordings appearing to support our concerns about insider dealing underlines the need for the fullest possible Commission of Investigation to be established.
“I would urge the maximum co-operation between the governments and statutory agencies and others, North and South, to get to the truth of this matter.”
