Britain’s National Crime Agency in action
The National Crime Agency (NCA) – described as Britain’s equivalent to the FBI – has contacted the BBC after revelations in a Spotlight programme about the sale of Nama’s Northern Ireland property loans.
[The National Asset Management Agency (Nama) sold the loan portfolio for more than £1bn in April 2014]
Spotlight covertly recorded former Nama advisor Frank Cushnahan claiming he was to receive fixer fees after the deal.
NCA director general Lynne Owens told the Policing Board that a NCA deputy director has approached the BBC.
“He has been engaging with the BBC in light of the Spotlight programme and of course will follow any lines of inquiry that arise as a result of that programme,” Ms Owens said.
