Answered by: Humza Yousaf 31 October 2018
The Independent Review commenced in September. The Independent Review has confirmed that several introductory meetings have been held with leaders and senior representatives of key organisations. The Lord Advocate and I have also met with Dame Elish Angiolini DBE QC. We understand that investigative meetings with operational staff are now being scheduled and a call for evidence to the public will be published shortly, to enable the wider public to participate.
