The effects of the conflict in Northern Ireland have been felt all across society.
PRONI holds many of the court and inquest records relating to the conflict and each year people write to PRONI seeking access to these files. They are searching for answers so that they can understand more about what happened to someone they loved or are seeking information about themselves.
Asking for information can be a difficult experience particularly when information may be sensitive and potentially distressing for people to learn.
PRONI considers requests for information under the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA), under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) and under the Court Files Privileged Access Rules (2016).
