5 November, 2007

Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness MP today visited the Office of the Police Ombudsman as Nuala O'Loan's term in the post came to an end.

Speaking after meeting with Ms O'Loan and her team Mr McGuinness said:

"Nuala O'Loan took up her position as Police Ombudsman at a challenging and difficult time. Through the last seven years, Nuala O'Loan along with her team of investigators and support staff have carried out their duties in a professional and diligent manner.

"As she leaves her post today I would thank her for the service she has given and I wish her well in the future. I also look forward to the new Ombudsman taking up his position and carrying on with the good work begun by Ms O'Loan and her team." ENDS
