FF senator to give NAMA documents to gardaí

Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin has said Senator Darragh O’Brien is to give documents, which make allegations about NAMA, to gardaí

Speaking in the Dáil, Mr Martin said the issues raised go the heart of confidence and trust in a body acting on the taxpayer’s behalf. 

He said one of the allegations made is that the entire file in relation to a person that was with NAMA was sent to a partner in a major global company who was acting on behalf of that person’s rival in advance of a high profile court case.

He said that would be a shocking revelation if proven to be true and it could not be left hanging there.

Mr Martin it was asserted that property valuations were also manipulated.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny told the Dáil that it was taking very seriously the allegations made in relation to NAMA. 

Mr Kenny said NAMA insist on independent valuations on all their properties.

He said Minister for Justice Alan Shatter was told by the Garda Commissioner that there had been contact between gardaí and NAMA earlier this year in relation to a former employee and gardaí are awaiting a statement of complaint.

Mr Kenny said allegations made by a firm of solicitors into a separate complaint would be fully investigated by gardaí. 

He said gardaí were waiting on further documentation from the solicitors.

Mr Martin also said that the Department of Finance had been in contact with the Barclay brothers, who are in conflict with businessman Paddy McKillen. 

Separately, Mr McKillen is challenging the sale of his loans by NAMA.
