Little confidence in PSNI investigations

12 May, 2004

Commenting on reports that the PSNI are to set up a unit to investigate unsolved killings, Sinn Féin Policing spokesperson Gerry Kelly said:

" Reports that the PSNI are to set up a unit to reinvestigate unsolved killings in the six counties will once again reinforce the sense of cover up and collusion. No killings carried out by the Crown forces will be part of this investigation. The families of those people killed through the policy of collusion will have little confidence in the PSNI carrying out any investigation.

" After all it was the Special Branch who were actively involved in formulating and carrying out the collusion policy and covering up countless killings over the past 30 years. The same Special Branch which remains at the heart of the PSNI today." ENDS
