Nama: Frank Cushnahan wanted payments 'kept secret'

Businessman Frank Cushnahan, who has been at the centre of the £1bn Nama deal controversy, has been recorded accepting a £40,000 cash payment from a Nama borrower, John Miskelly.

In a later recording of Mr Cushnahan, also broadcast by BBC Spotlight NI, he appears to encourage Mr Miskelly to lie to police if they ask questions about their Nama-related dealings.

Mr Miskelly has said "payments made by me to any persons have been lawful".

Mr Cushnahan has denied any wrongdoing and told BBC Spotlight he would not be providing any further responses because of the ongoing National Crime Agency (NCA) investigation.
