Gerry Kelly comments on Ombudsman's investigation into senior PSNI
Responding to reports that the Ombudsman is investigating three senior officers in the PSNI Gerry Kelly said:
“The news that the Ombudsman is investigating three of the most senior officers in the PSNI including the Chief Constable is a matter of huge concern to the public.
“The Ombudsman in treating this as a ‘critical incident’ makes this so.
“No one is above the law and every citizen is equal under the law.
“The investigation should be thorough and carried out with impartiality.
“The Ombudsman’s Office has not recommended suspension of any of those being investigated.
“We expect the Ombudsman to keep this under review.”
