The OSP takes all necessary and reasonable steps to protect the safety and welfare of witnesses, victims, and the relations of witnesses and victims, as well as other persons determined by the Special Prosecutor as requiring protection.

These measures include

  • physical protection of such persons, and if necessary relocating and housing them, and restricting the disclosure of information concerning their identity and whereabouts
  • applying for such persons to give testimony using communications technology where necessary, taking into consideration the views and concerns of victims at appropriate stages of proceedings.
