NI: Anti-paramilitarism panel presents proposals to Executive
The three-person panel appointed to develop an anti-paramilitarism strategy for Northern Ireland have presented their proposals to the Northern Ireland Executive, the Belfast Telegraph reports.
The Independent Review Panel was created to fulfil a key commitment from cross-party talks last year.
The panel included Lord Alderdice, a former member of the Independent Monitoring Commission, as well as Professor Monica McWilliams, professor of women’s studies at the Transitional Justice Institute, Ulster University, and solicitor John McBurney.
The panel met with First Minister Arlene Foster and deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness on Monday 23 May.
Having submitted its proposals, the panel’s work will now be considered by DUP and Sinn Féin ministers, as well as new Justice Minister Claire Sugden.
