PAC free to interview anyone in NAMA investigation, says Taoiseach

The Taoiseach has said that the Public Accounts Committee should feel free to recall any witnesses as part of its investigation of NAMA.

Enda Kenny's comments come after claims that the committee was not given all relevant information in its hearing last week.

It has since emerged that former NAMA advisor Frank Cushnahan - who was set to receive £5m for the sale of the Northern Irish loans - was also a director of a NAMA debtor.

In the Dáil this afternoon the Taoiseach responded to complaints that this crucial information was not given to the PAC last week.

"The public accounts chairman has every right to recall or call back personnel from NAMA to ask them any questions, or any further questions that arise from any new information that comes to light,"" said the Taoiseach.
