Northern Ireland: Murder Prosecutions

Volume 702: debated on Thursday 19 June 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by Lord Rooker on 12 May (WA 114) concerning murders of Ulster Defence Regiment and Royal Irish Regiment soldiers, whether the fact that in 15 of the 203 cases work has been completed means that no further investigations are to be held. [HL4097]

In relation to the 15 cases referred to in my written response to the noble Lord on 12 May, there are no current plans for further reinvestigation.

The remaining 188 cases that have yet to be completed will continue to be investigated, and will undergo the same process as the 15 cases that have been completed.
