A FORMER senior PSNI detective chief superintendant is leading an investigation into alleged police corruption during the Stephen Lawrence murder inquiry, it has been revealed.
Roy McComb, who led the PSNI’s Organised Crime Branch, is now deputy director at the National Crime Agency.
The NCA confirmed it has been investigating allegations relating to the police inquiry in 1993 since March this year and Roy McComb was leading the inquiry team.
Stephen Lawrence, 18, was stabbed to death in an unprovoked attack at a bus stop in Eltham by a gang of white youths.
Members of the Lawrence family and their legal representatives have been involved in the inquiry and are being kept updated, the NCA said.
Any findings will be reported back to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) and could result in criminal or misconduct proceedings.
