Matt Baggot on the accusation of uneven treatment of witnesses by the HET…

Interesting little nugget from UTV last night on the accusation that the HET has been treating security forces differently from citizens witnesses, in which Matt Baggot reports that he has ordered an inspection of HET’s procedures, he also wryly notes:

I’m very mindful that the Historical Inquiries Team did meet with the researcher back in February again with explanations, but they don’t feature in her report at this stage…

The report by Dr Patricia Lundy is just the latest in a body of work on this and related matters, which you can find on her research page here
