Witness statements will allow the Inquiry to receive a detailed picture of the work undertaken by each officer during their time within the Special Demonstration Squad, the National Public Order Intelligence Unit and units from other police forces.
Witness statements will form part of the hearings bundles produced for the evidence hearings. Evidential hearings bundles will bring together all the relevant information about an officer’s deployment.
Once the hearings for a particular tranche have finished, all open evidence considered as part of that tranche will be published. This includes witness statements, subject to any restriction order redactions.
