Eight probed over £1.2bn NI Nama sell-off

By staff reporter

Eight people are being investigated by the National Crime Agency (NCA) in connection with the £1.2bn sale of Nama's Northern Ireland property portfolio.

NCA director Lynne Owens told the BBC in Belfast yesterday that more than 60 witnesses had now been questioned.

Nama's Northern Ireland loan portfolio was sold to US investment fund Cerberus in 2014.

The Nama sale was the biggest property deal in Northern Ireland's history, but it has been plagued by accusations of corruption, fraud and bribery.

"We have eight potential suspects under investigation, seven of them have already been interviewed," Ms Owens said.

Three people have been arrested so far.
