You sought the following information from PSNI:
“In relation to the settlement agreed by both the MOD and PSNI in the Miami Showband civil action in December 2021, can you please answer the following:
Why was the PSNI co-joined with the MOD when there is no clear evidence of wrong-doing by any police officer?
What percentage of the compensation was paid by the PSNI?
Has the NI Department of Justice had any briefing from the Chief Constable on why it was necessary for a portion of the PSNI's budget to be paid in damages in this case?
If so, when did this briefing take place?
If the damages were paid due to unsubstantiated claims that Robin Jackson was both a police agent at the time and involved in the atrocity, were the Special Branch records located and examined before any payment from the public purse was made?”
