Our client Daithí McKay has been granted leave by the High Court to challenge his return to the Crown Court for trial in relation to a charge of conspiracy to commit an offence of misconduct in public office.

Part of the Prosecution case is that Mr McKay conspired with others to cause harm to the public in respect of a Stormont Committee Hearing in 2015 when a co-defendant alleged that there was corruption around the sale of Nama’s £1.1 billion Northern Ireland property portfolio known as Project Eagle.

Michael Madden of Madden & Finucane said:

“This application will be subject to a full hearing during which we will be seeking that the decision to return Mr Mckay for trial is quashed, effectively ending the prosecution.”
