Businessman denies 'IRA' claims
Peter Robinson
Peter Robinson used parliamentary privilege to make claims
The DUP's Peter Robinson has used parliamentary privilege to claim that a leading Belfast businessman is linked to what he termed "IRA dirty money".

Mr Robinson said Peter Curistan was a key investor in the Odyssey Centre in his East Belfast constituency.

Mr Curistan told the BBC he refuted the allegations and had already launched legal proceedings against a newspaper over similar claims.

He challenged Mr Robinson to repeat his claims outside of parliament.
