Jamie Bryson 'will not cooperate' with Nama coaching probe

Loyalist blogger Jamie Bryson has told the BBC he will not cooperate with any investigation into alleged "coaching" by Sinn Féin's Daithí McKay, before he appeared last year at Stormont's National Management Agency (Nama) inquiry.

"I won't be cooperating with any investigation into who I talk to, who my sources are: they can throw me in jail first," he said.

Last September, Mr Bryson used a meeting of the Stormont Finance Committee to name former DUP leader Peter Robinson as the individual he referred to as "Person A" in relation to the scandal.

The then first minister of Northern Ireland strongly denied he had sought to benefit in any way from the multi-million pound property deal.

Mr McKay has resigned as MLA for North Antrim and has been suspended from Sinn Féin with immediate effect.
