Loyalist blogger claims he has been snubbed by PAC investigating Nama's NI loans

The Public Accounts Committee has withdrawn an invitation for a Loyalist blogger to give evidence on Nama.

The committee had written to Jamie Bryson last week inviting him to attend to give evidence around the sale of Nama's Northern Irish loans.

However today Mr Bryson says the invitation has been withdrawn, claiming chairman John McGuinness has been "under pressure" from other members.

The committee is due to meet tomorrow morning to discuss the issue further, and is scheduled to take further evidence from Nama.
