TD Wallace accuses Taoiseach of 'NAMA cover-up'

The Taoiseach's been accused of a cover-up over his refusal to set up a Commission of Investigation on NAMA.

The claim comes from Independent TD Mick Wallace who has again appealed for an independent inquiry into the agency's affairs.

In the Dáil today he claimed a firm who acted as advisors to NAMA on the sale of its Northern loans was also working with the investment fund Cerberus to buy the portfolio.

And he says Enda Kenny's failure to order an independent inquiry is a sign that he is also part of a cover-up:

“A commission of inquiry is the only way that you are going to get the answers we need,” Mr Wallace said.

“The Irish people have not been served well by NAMA, it stinks to high heaven and you are involved in the cover up because you refuse to do anything about it. You don’t want to know!”
