Billy Wright Inquiry

In March 2008, a former holder of this post, identified only as Witness DCI testified to the inquiry onto the death of loyalist Billy Wright:

The MI5 officer said this week that the inquiry panel had already seen evidence that the Intelligence Service had informed RUC Special Branch in April, 1997 about the INLA threat.
He said he had assumed police would have passed the information on to the prison authorities.[2]
