Ulster Unionist Leader, Mike Nesbitt MLA, has stated that if the allegations made today in the Irish Parliament are proven to be true, they represent corruption on a huge scale.
Mr Nesbitt said:
“We have heard rumours of corruption before, but nothing approaching this quantum. If true, it represents abuse of power of a previously unimaginable scale.
“For the record, I can state categorically I am not the intended recipient of this alleged £7m.”
