Jamie Bryson to appeal Police Ombudsman probe decision

Jamie Bryson has asked the DoJ to review an investigation that cleared the Police Ombudsman of any wrongdoing over his involvement in a documentary about the Loughinisland massacre

LOYALIST blogger Jamie Bryson has asked for a dismissed complaint against Police Ombudsman Michael Maguire to be reviewed by the Department of Justice.

The move comes after the department threw out a complaint made by Mr Bryson after Dr Michael Maguire took part in the documentary No Stone Unturned about the 1994 Loughinisland killings during which the UVF shot dead six Catholic men.
