This strategic review of undercover policing in Scotland has been directed by the Cabinet Secretary for Justice and will be undertaken by HMICS in terms of Section 74(1) of the Police and Fire Reform (Scotland) Act 2012. Our report will be provided to Scottish Ministers and published in terms of Sections 78 (1) and (2) of the Act.
Labour MSP Neil Findlay said: “I welcome the terms of reference being published, however the failure to investigate undercover police activity prior to the year 2000 means that there will be no light shone on activities during the anti-poll tax campaign, the miners’ strike, the Kinning park print dispute or the infiltration of animal rights groups amongst many, many others.
“This means that Scottish victims of unethical and/or illegal undercover police activity during the 70s, 80s and 90s will be denied access to the truth of what happened, unlike victims in England and Wales. This is unacceptable.”
