Sinn Féin MLA for Upper Bann, John O’Dowd has stated that questions need to be answered by the British Ministry of Justice in terms a serious breach where sensitive material in the Robert Hamill inquiry has be lost.

Speaking today Mr O’Dowd said:

“The loss of 2 disks containing data relating to the Robert Hamill inquiry being lost by the Ministry of Justice raises serious questions.

“It is imperative the Hamill family and their legal representatives are given the fullest details of what has gone missing.

“Given the nature of this inquiry and the delays that the family have experienced this will undoubtedly raise suspicions from those looking in on the inquiry.

“All steps must now be taken to retrieve this information and to restore confidence in this process.”
