Nama inquiry: Jamie Bryson claims Peter Robinson was to receive payment

From the section Northern Ireland
An inquiry has heard an allegation that Northern Ireland’s first minister was to receive a payment upon completion of NI’s biggest property deal.
DUP leader Peter Robinson has previously denied he was to receive any payment or benefit as part of the deal.
The £1.2bn sale was of property loans to US firm Cerberus by Nama – the Republic of Ireland’s “bad bank”.
The claims were made at Stormont’s finance committee by loyalist blogger Jamie Bryson.
Mr Bryson told the committee that the money was paid into an Isle of Man bank account controlled by solicitor Ian Coulter .
He said the other beneficiaries were to be Mr Coulter, accountant David Watters, ex-Nama advisor Frank Cushnahan and developer Andrew Creighton.
