The First and deputy First Minister have announced the appointment of Kathryn Stone as the new Victims Commissioner. She’ll be replacing the previous three Victims Commissioners later this month.

The outgoing Victims Commissioners failed victims and survivors at every level. Will the incoming Victims Commissioner do any better? Watch this space.
