Police Ombudsman statement regarding judicial review

Published Date: 21.12.2017

The Police Ombudsman's Office has expressed disappointment at today's High Court judgment on a judicial review concerning its 2016 Loughinisland report.

A spokesman for the Office said: “We respect the judgment of the Court, and are clearly disappointed. We will need time over the coming weeks to consider it carefully.

 “As we look at the judgment in more detail we will examine all the options open to us including an appeal. Clearly, however, we have to wait until the final outcome of the challenge.

“This judgment may have implications for how Northern Ireland deals with historical matters, affecting not only this Office, but also proposed solutions such as the Historical Inquiries Unit.”
