It is reported that the retired judge looking into the Stardust tragedy will finally be given new evidence.
48 people died in the 1981 nightclub fire, and in recent years families of the victims have been calling for ‘new and updated evidence’ to be reviewed.
Earlier this year, the Government agreed to appoint a retired judge to examine the evidence and decide if a full new commission of investigation is justified.
Judge Pat McCartan was chosen to lead the review - but he has yet to consider any evidence.
According to The Times, it is now hoped the evidence will be handed over today, amid efforts by junior minister Finian McGrath to resolve an impasse between the Department of Justice and relatives of the victims.
The Government has previously said that the Stardust Relatives and Victims Committee (SRVC) has threatened to not engage in the process unless "historical fees that the committee claims are owed to it" are paid.
