Maskey raises PSNI disciplinary investigation with senior officers

15 December, 2008 - by Alex Maskey


Sinn Féin spokesperson on Policing issues Alex Maskey today said that the PSNI investigation which has resulted in officers being suspended needed to be completed quickly and the results including disciplinary measures made public.

Mr Maskey said:

"The allegations against these officers are extremely serious, including misuse of a firearm and dangerous and reckless driving. I have been in touch with senior officers to discuss this matter. People will be watching very closely the results of the ongoing PSNI investigation.

"For reasons of community confidence and good practice it is vital that this investigation is completed quickly and the results including disciplinary measures made public.

"If it is proven that these allegations are true then I am in no doubt that the public will expect those involved to be removed from the PSNI." ENDS
