Participating institutions to indemnify NAMA.

135.— (1) If NAMA so directs, a participating institution shall indemnify NAMA or a NAMA group entity and each of their officers against any liability or loss (however arising, and regardless of any default on the part of NAMA or a NAMA group entity)—

( a) arising from any error, omission or misstatement in any information, explanation, instrument, document, record, book or certificate provided to NAMA or the NAMA group entity by or on behalf of the participating institution,

( b) in respect of any claim, award, payment or damages which NAMA or the NAMA group entity becomes liable to pay to any person by reason of the operation of the European Communities (Protection of Employees on Transfer of Undertakings) Regulations 2003 ( S.I. No. 131 of 2003) where the liability arises in connection with a cause of action accruing before the relevant acquisition date (or any proportion of the liability or loss is attributable to a period before the relevant acquisition date) including any claim made by or on behalf of such a person that relates to an act or omission of the participating institution in connection with that person’s employment before the acquisition date, and

( c) in respect of any redundancy payment, or any other severance payment, paid by NAMA or the NAMA group entity, or that NAMA or the NAMA group entity is ordered to pay, to any person whose employment transfers to NAMA or the NAMA group entity by reason of the operation of those Regulations and whose employment is terminated by NAMA or the NAMA group entity by reason of redundancy.

(2) Where the Court determines ownership of a bank asset in favour of a third party and as a result NAMA or a NAMA group entity is obliged to transfer the bank asset to the third party or pay damages in lieu, the participating institution shall indemnify NAMA or the NAMA group entity against that liability and all losses suffered by it.

(3) The Court and any other court or tribunal in which legal proceedings are brought in respect of a matter referred to in subsection (1) shall not make NAMA or a NAMA group entity a party to the proceedings in any capacity where the liability is that of the participating institution.

(4) If NAMA or a NAMA group entity so directs, and without prejudice to section 105 , a participating institution shall indemnify NAMA or the NAMA group entity and its officers against any liability or loss in respect of a legal or equitable wrong referred to in that section.
