Jon Boutcher to discuss lessons learned from Operation Kenova

1 Mins read

Jon Boutcher will be asked at an evidence session of the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee how Operation Kenova has succeeded in eliciting information from security services on historical Troubles cases. The Committee will look at how this and Kenova’s family engagement practices can provide useful lessons for the UK Government when designing its new legacy investigations policy.

Chief Constable Simon Byrne and Detective Chief Superintendent Bobby Singleton, who heads the PSNI’s Legacy Branch, will appear separately before Mr Boutcher at the evidence session to discuss the PSNI’s approach to legacy investigations.

The Committee is also likely to explore:

– the potential merits and demerits of the Government’s new proposals to deal with the legacy of the Troubles;
– the role and value of governance and oversight mechanisms; and
– how the Government can implement an independent, impartial and trustworthy legacy investigations process.

The evidence session is the fourth of the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee’s Legacy Inquiry.
