Letters to a parliamentary assistant, who refused to accept Sinn Fein policy that he should draw only the average minimum wage, reveal how he was berated by the party's head of human resources for not contributing to party funds.

He was repeatedly asked to submit his Oireachtas wage slip to the party's finance section, in order to calculate how much he should pay.

Matt Treacy, a former IRA prisoner, released the demand letters from Sinn Fein last week after the party dismissed his account of being pursued for money as "untrue".
