Adams calls for NAMA investigation as concerns mount over Project Eagle
Sinn Féin Leader Gerry Adams TD has again called for the Government to establish a Commission of Investigation into the management and operations of the National Management Agency (Nama).
His call comes as concern mounts over the sale of NAMA's northern portfolio, also known as Project Eagle.
Gerry Adams said:
“The Recent testimony of businessman Gareth Graham that he is in possession of thousands of phone calls made by Frank Cushnanan a member of Nama's NI Advisory Committee, exposing inappropriate and possibly illegal conduct across the political, banking, legal and accountancy sectors, is alarming.
“The US Department of Justice is now investigating the Cerberus deal and have sent a subpoena for information to Cerberus on Project Eagle.
“Nama has refused to appear before the North's Assembly Committee. However, documentation sent by NAMA to the Committee appears to contradict evidence given to the Dáil Public Accounts Committee by Frank Daly of Nama.
“All of this warrants the establishment of a Commission of Investigation by the Irish Government.
“To date, the Minister for Finance has failed to even come before the Dáil and make a statement on the matter.
“I am today putting the Government and Minister Noonan on notice that Sinn Féin will table a Dáil private members motion at the first opportunity on all these issues.”
