Rivada Networks not funding Libertas 'no' campaign

The chairman of Libertas has denied that his company is funding the organisation's campaign for a 'no' vote in the Lisbon Treaty referendum.

Declan Ganley is chief executive of Rivada Networks and reports this morning say four more of the founders of Libertas also work for the company.

However, speaking in Dublin today, Mr Ganley said Rivada was not funding the Libertas campaign.

He said the money raised by the organisation has all come from within Ireland and Libertas was fully complying with the law on political donations.

Mr Ganley also said reports about Rivada's business connections with the US military are a tactic designed to detract from what Libertas is saying about the Lisbon Treaty.
