Máiría Cahill welcomes NI review
22 May 2015 23:11
Máiría Cahill has welcomed a review into how Northern Ireland's Public Prosecution Services handled complaints by her and two others that concluded they were let down.
-
The person with overall responsibility for the service, Barra McGrory, has made an apology to the three individuals involved.
-
The review was carried out by Sir Keir Starmer, a former Director of Public Prosecutions in England and Wales and an Australian barrister, Katherine O'Byrne.
-
Five years ago three people, including Ms Cahill, made reports to the police of alleged sexual abuse, dating between 1997 and 2000.
-
Charges were laid against a number of individuals between 2010 and 2012 - some involving sexual abuse allegations and some IRA membership.
-
The cases were split into three trials.
-
Owing to various matters, none of the trials had been heard by the start of 2014.
-
Ultimately all three complainants withdrew their evidence, citing frustrations with the court process and the prosecution.
-
Verdicts of not guilty were entered in respect of all charges.
