Raphael says the alleged incident happened before the 2005 and 2009 general elections.
Raphael claims he was asked by the UWP to make connections and help set up the deal.
He claims he was also asked to receive the funds on behalf of the UWP as he was not directly associated with the party and was asked to distribute the money to 4 local business accounts controlled by 4 prominent UWP business persons.
