From each investigation, the Inquiry will identify relevant materials and compile a pack to assist the witness in preparing their statement. These packs may be subject to restriction order redactions.

The finalised pack will be issues to the witness and their legal representative, accompanied by a request for a witness statement. This request is called a ‘Rule 9 request’.

A Witness Protocol was also issued by the Chairman in January 2018 which sets out what is required.
