Today, a team from Madden & Finucane who represent the families of those killed and wounded on Bloody Sunday met with the Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Ian Harrison to discuss the progress of the new investigation.

Following the meeting Peter Madden said:

“The confidence of the families and indeed the wider community in Derry was shattered as a result of the Chief Constable’s decision to effectively end this murder investigation last October and we are pleased that the legal action which we commenced has now resulted in a change of position.

“Today’s meeting involved a detailed, frank and robust exchange of views with the Senior Investigating Officer about the progress and future direction of this investigation. Serious concern was expressed about the fact that no soldier has yet been arrested or questioned.

“Whilst today’s meeting was constructive, there remains a significant onus on the PSNI to restore public confidence in this investigation and they will be judged accordingly.”
