I had noted the reported comments, in an Observer article, of the spokesman for the Assistant Chief Constable Peter Sheridan at the end of a longer post earlier today. But they’re worth highlighting and considering on their own.
A spokesman for the Assistant Chief Constable stressed that the murder inquiry was still a live investigation and was limited in what information he could disclose. “ACC Sheridan confirmed that the detective in charge of the case had had a number of working meetings with representatives of Sinn Fein. At the last meeting, Sinn Fein agreed to look at encouraging members of their party and witnesses to come forward. As of Thursday 4 October no new witnesses had come forward,” he said.
“ACC Sheridan did not say there had been full co-operation from Sinn Fein. There are divergences between ACC Sheridan’s comments and the briefings which have been given to the family by the detective in charge of the case. The case is due to come to court in the near future.”
