Anderson comments on establishment of oversight committee

18 November, 2010 - by Maeve McLaughlin

Sinn Fein Policing Board member Martina Anderson MLA has tonight cautiously welcomed the establishment of an independent oversight structure into the PSNI investigation of numerous murders carried out by the UVF.

Speaking this evening Martina Anderson said;

"This move comes about after very real concerns expressed by the families in regard to the Police investigating the Police.

For our part Sinn Fein will continue to be totally robust in our role of oversight into this whole investigation.

Understandably many families felt the situation where the PSNI was investigating very serious allegations of collusion and manipulation of agents as totally unacceptable, Sinn Fein shared those concerns and it is indicative of this that the PSNI has formed this independent oversight structure. Our Policing Board members will continue to monitor this situation closely.
