Further unlawful police surveillance allegations ‘deeply concerning’ – Kelly

Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly has said additional revelations in the media today about unlawful police surveillance are ‘deeply concerning’.

The party’s policing spokesperson said:

“Additional revelations in the media about unlawful surveillance by the PSNI will cause more damage to police reputation, if true.

“These new allegations are deeply concerning and I will be raising this in the Policing Board and with the Chief Constable.

“The Investigatory Powers Tribunal will present its findings in October relating to police surveillance of journalists, alongside the McCullough review which is dealing with similar issues.

“Despite this, there is a growing view, because of these additional revelations, that a public inquiry with powers to compel witnesses is the only way to establish the full truth.”
