Judicial figure Sinn Fein has previously rejected the terms of reference drawn up by the head of the Northern Ireland civil service to investigate the issue. The party wants the attorney general to appoint a judge to head up the panel. Emergency legislation would be required to give the investigation powers to compel witnesses and documentation.
