§ Mr. Kilfedder
asked the Attorney-General why, in the case of which details have been supplied to him, no charges were brought against a Royal Ulster Constabulary Reserve policeman who had passed information to the Provisional Irish Republican Army prior to December 1979.
§ The Attorney-General
When the case was considered in November 1979 the DPP and I considered that the prosecution of this man was not justified in the public 383W interest. One of the factors which we took into account was the likelihood that evidence might emerge which would put lives at risk.
