Policing Board seeks felony advice after McDonald statement


The Policing Board is seeking legal advice about recruiting a new Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) leader constable.

Concerns were raised approximately the fairness of the recruitment process after comments by using Sinn Féin president Mary Lou McDonald.

On Monday, she indicated that an intruder should replace the current Chief Constable George Hamilton.

He has announced that he intends to retire on the top of June.

Unionist politicians have stated the Sinn Féin chief’s remarks have compromised the drawing close selection procedure.

Ms. McDonald’s comments came on the same afternoon she met two potential candidates for the post – Deputy Chief Constable Stephen Martin and Assistant Chief Constable George Clarke.

That meeting changed into approximately the talk over Police Ombudsman legacy documents.

The Policing Board is taking criminal recommendations approximately the implications for its recruitment process.

In the beyond, a ramification panel with representatives from the principal political parties – including Sinn Féin – has been set up to pick the following leader constable.

Once legal advice is obtained, the Policing Board will decide its subsequent circulate.
