Guernsey's home minister will be questioned in public over a decision to keep secret details of an out-of-court settlement with a law firm.

The Home Department has not revealed the cost of the settlement agreed with AFR Advocates after an unlawful police raid in June 2010.

The Scrutiny Committee has launched a review into the decision to keep that sum confidential.

The public hearing is due to take place on Thursday 21 March.

The committee has asked members of the public "to observe but not to participate" in the proceedings at the Royal Court.

Scrutiny Committee Chairman Paul Arditti said it would be "an important opportunity for the minister to explain, in public and on the record, the reasons behind the decisions taken by the Home Department in relation to this matter".
