IoM named in NI finance allegation

Blogger makes claims agains Peter Robinson

It’s alleged an Isle of Man bank account was used to make a payment to Northern Ireland's first minister Peter Robinson.

 

A hearing of Stormont's finance committee has today (Wednesday) been told Mr Robinson was to receive the money upon completion of Northern Ireland's biggest property deal.

The £1.2 billion sale was of a portfolio of property loans to US investment firm Cerberus by Irish bank Nama.

Mr Robinson has previously denied he was to receive any payment or benefit as a result of the deal. 

The allegation was made by loyalist blogger Jamie Bryson.
