Police Ombudsman statement on Loughinisland investigation

Published Date: 20.12.2012

The Police Ombudsman, Dr Michael Maguire, has accepted a court direction that his Office should set aside its public report into aspects of the terrorist attack on Loughinisland in 1994, which was issued in June 2011.   

In the light of the Judicial Review proceedings instigated on behalf of Brigid Green, Dr Maguire commissioned a review of the content of the report.
Having considered the findings of that review, he accepts that there may be deficiencies in specific areas of the report and is therefore able to accept the court direction setting it aside.
Dr Maguire takes the view that further investigative work will be necessary before a new public statement can be published.
