CJI Chief Inspector Brendan McGuigan said Inspectors found varying degrees of progress when carrying out their review in relation to the 45 recommendations and sub recommendations accepted by the DoJ.
"A total of 19% of sub recommendations were found to be achieved with a further 31% showing substantial progress. Of the remaining 50%, Inspectors found 12% of sub recommendations showed no progress with the remaining 38% indicating only limited progress.
"On that basis half of recommendations require significant progress to be made in this second year of work, in order to achieve the desired levels of implementation within the timescales that have been set," said Mr McGuigan.
