Statement re NAMA coaching allegations

Statement by Green Party re. NAMA coaching allegations and subsequent resignation of Daithí McKay.

Green Party leader Steven Agnew said, today, Thursday 18 August,

“I am shocked by these revelations, which fundamentally undermine trust between parties in the Assembly, and with our constituents.

“The role of committee chair should be carried out with integrity and I am disappointed that this does not appear to be the case in this instance.

“The Standards and Privileges Committee needs to act on this immediately. Given the breach of public office, if this needs to be referred to the PSNI then there should be no obstacles put in the way.

“People need to have trust in our political institutions.

“I am also surprised that the Sinn Féin hierarchy apparently knew nothing about the alleged communications between their representatives and Jamie Bryson. It is my opinion that a solo run by anyone in Sinn Féin is highly unlikely.
