I am informed by NAMA that two complaints regarding potential breaches of Section 172(3) of the NAMA Act 2009 have been brought to their attention.

 In relation to one of the alleged breaches, I am advised that NAMA has concluded its investigations and is satisfied that no breach has occurred. In relation to the second alleged breach, I am advised that An Garda Síochána is separately investigating it and their investigation is ongoing. Criminal investigations, such as this, are a matter for An Garda Síochána and the DPP and I am advised that, to date, their investigations have not resulted in a prosecution.
