The report indicates that the current yearly financial cost borne by the criminal justice agencies is estimated to exceed £30m.  The report anticipates that total costs incurred by the criminal justice may reach over £187m five years from now.
 
"This report does not set out to indicate how legacy issues should be approached or offer a view on the costs and impacts associated with this work, but it does seek to provide information on the costs and impacts for the criminal justice system in dealing with the past," said CJI's Chief Inspector Brendan McGuigan.
 
"The report recognises the willingness and commitment Inspectors found among leaders and criminal justice organisations to meet and manage their individual and collective obligations in relation to the past.  It also suggests the criminal justice system has not been structured to  deal with or provide a comprehensive solution to legacy issues.
