National Crime Agency report (FOI)
National Crime Agency report (FOI)Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by States of Jersey and published on 05 August 2016.
In January 2016 the National Crime Agency (NCA) reviewed the States of Jersey Police investigation (Operation Panama) into the then missing Adrian Lynch. The NCA published a report for the SOJP which included recommendations for the investigation (Panama). I would like a copy of that report or, at the very least, ALL the recommendations the NCA made to the SOJP.
The request is refused.
