2000 killings to be investigated

It is extremely doubtful that Northern Ireland will see a Truth and Reconciliation Commission of the South African model, but there remains a huge legacy of unsolved crimes left over from 30+ years of conflict. The Chief Constable Hugh Orde launches an investigation into 2,000 unsolved killings under the auspices of the Historical Enquiries Team. It will have a budget of more than £30m and squad of about 100 detectives and support staff. It’s expect to take between five and seven years to complete its work.
