Savita Halapanavar: A transparent and accountable inquiry?

The Galway coroner who will be conducting the inquest into the death of Savita Halapanavar, Dr. Ciarán MacLoughlin, was crystal clear.

The inquest would sit in early January. Will have over 30 witnesses and will run over a number of days.

It will be open, there is compellability of witnesses and they can be cross-examined.

We expect to have all witness statements taken by December 7th.

It will be accountable, transparent and we will get to the bottom of what happened

If Dr. MacLoughlin is as good as his word then all the current and proposed ‘investigations’ will be unnecessary.
