I am informed by NAMA that it is currently aware of one open investigation into an alleged breach of Section 172(3) of the NAMA Act 2009. I am advised that, so far as NAMA is aware, An Garda Síochána’s investigation into this alleged breach is continuing.

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.
