Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson has called for clarity on why a bank account belonging to the Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign. 

Ms Anderson said; 

"The recent move by the Bank of Ireland to suspend the bank account of the Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign sparked anger across the world. 

"I wrote to the Chief Executive of the Bank of Ireland asking for an explanation of why the account was suspended.
