Statement by Peter Robinson, then Leader of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), about the BBC Spotlight programme on Iris Robinson affair, Belfast, (8 January 2010)


"I completely reject BBC Spotlight's attempt to implicate me by insinuation and innuendo.

I am even more appalled by the inclusion on that programme of comments and conclusions made without any supporting facts - indeed with facts in the programme which support a contrary position.

While I have learned from Spotlight for the first time some alleged aspects of my wife's affair and her financial arrangements, I will be resolutely defending attacks on my character and contesting any allegations of wrongdoing.

To that end, I will be addressing the media today after I have taken legal advice."
