S5W-18414: Jackie Baillie (Dumbarton)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 28 August 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what steps the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service has taken to keep families informed about the process in relation to fire at Cameron House, Loch Lomond.

Answered by: James Wolffe QC 13 September 2018

Police Scotland appointed Family Liaison Officers (FLO) to keep the families informed about the progress of the investigation. A FLO is an experienced police officer who has been specially trained to provide information to bereaved family members. At an appropriate stage in the investigation, this role will be transferred to COPFS staff.

In the meantime COPFS have ensured that the nearest relatives have been kept advised of significant developments in accordance with the Family Liaison Charter which the Lord Advocate laid before the Scottish Parliament in September 2016.
