Item 3: Order Paper 270/11-16 –  14 April 2015

Motion: UDR Four

That this Assembly notes the miscarriage of justice in the case of the UDR Four; recognises the particular circumstances of Mr Colin Worton in relation to the case and that he served over two and a half years in custody on remand before the case against him was dropped and he was released; further notes the Minister of Justice’s comments on the miscarriage of justice, the innocence of Mr Worton and the significant detrimental impact on Mr Worton; and calls on the Minister of Justice to seek urgently to address this miscarriage of justice by exercising his discretion to provide redress for Mr Worton.

[Mr W Irwin]
[Mrs A Foster]

The Speaker has selected the following Amendment for debate:

Amendment 1

Proposed: Leave out all after ‘further notes’ and insert:

‘the previous comments of the Minister of Justice that Colin Worton was found by the proper authorities of the law to be not guilty of any crime associated with the death of Adrian Carroll; and concludes that the inability of the Minister of Justice to provide compensation in no way undermines Mr Worton's innocence.’

[Mr S Dickson]
[Mr T Lunn]
