Saville Inquiry Facebook Post
A number of people have recently shared a post which the Regiment put out in 2015 when one of our veterans who was named by the Saville Inquiry was interviewed under caution by the PSNI in NI. This is an old post and unfortunately it is causing some confusion and additional stress to those caught up in the inquiry. Could we please ask you not to share this post
Are veterans to be prosecuted as a result of the Saville Report?
A decision whether to proceed with an investigation with intent to prosecute those named in the Saville Inquiry has yet to be made. The Public Prosecutions Service was due to make a decision late this summer, but until now has not done so and we continue to wait. In the meantime, RHQ PARA have written to those involved offering welfare and pastoral support. If you are involved, or know someone who is involved, who hasn’t heard from us could you please let me know. Contact details below.
If you have been affected by the current NI investigations or you know someone who is, please contact

Also look at this website which has been designed both to inform and to assist veterans of the UK Armed Forces when facing interview, investigation or prosecution as a result of operational duty during their term of service. Look particularly at the section ‘Practical advice’ https://www.ukveteranslegal.co.uk
