Review of cases linked to Cahill
21 Oct 2014 23:11
Three cases linked to the alleged rape of Belfast woman Maíria Cahill are to be reviewed.
-
Northern Ireland's Director of Public Prosecutions Barra McGrory QC has announced that he is establishing an independent review.
-
Ms Cahill said she was raped as a teenager in 1997 by a member of the IRA and later interrogated by the organisation about her allegations.
-
The man she accused of rape was later acquitted of charges of membership of the IRA when she withdrew her evidence.
-
Mr McGrory said he believed an independent external scrutiny of the processes and procedures in relation to the cases was warranted.
-
He said all aspects of the prosecutions would be reviewed and if there are lessons to be learned, we will do so openly and transparently.
