No 'dark side' to Northern Ireland police

Thursday, 15 May 2014

A senior officer in the Police Service of Northern Ireland has rejected Sinn Féin claims of a 'dark side' at work in the force.

Chief Superintendant Nigel Grimshaw said that officers in the force should investigate allegations of crime 'without fear or favour'.

The allegations follows the arrest and subsequent release of Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams as part of the investigation into the murder of Jean McConville.

Following his release Adams called for a 'victim-centred way' to deal with the legacy of violence and conflict in Northern Ireland.
