Justice group welcome
A Unionist councillor has welcomed news that a community restorative justice scheme in Newry and south Armagh has received official government status.
The CRJ scheme, based in Mullaghbawn, received government accreditation on Thursday following an inspection by Criminal Justice Inspection NI (CJI).
The inspection reported that the UN principles on Restorative Justice were being observed by the organisation and that senior police officers working in Newry and south Armagh indicated that a relationship which held promise for the future is developing.
