Sinn Féin MLA Caitriona Ruane has accused the PSNI of dragging its heels over the Loughinisland investigation.
Ms. Ruane said,
“I have been raising the matter of the investigation into the Loughinisland investigation at all levels, including both the Irish and British governments and the Policing Board as I believe not enough is being done to move the investigation forward.
“There are many questions to be answered into the Loughinisland attack including the original RUC investigation, the role of British state agents and the destruction of evidence.
“The families have now been waiting for eighteen years for justice yet every announcement brings more questions than answers and they are quickly losing confidence in the PSNI ability to bring them the truth.
“I believe it is time we had an full independent review of the entire case and I am intent in ensuring that the truth of this matter is brought into the public domain no matter what obstacles are placed in the way.”
