Praveen Halappanavar’s solicitor Gerard O’Donnell said today he and his client have yet to see the report of the HSE inquiry into the death of Savita Halappanavar who died at Galway University Hospital on 28 October 2012. Details from a draft report into the 31-year-old’s death were published in the Evening Herald.
Mr O’Donnell said they had been contacted last week by the HSE, inviting them to participate “at a critical juncture" in the inquiry, but that they “politely declined”. Minister for Health, James Reilly, today declined to comment on the leak, saying he had not seen the report." He said he expected to receive the HSE's report in 10 days and he intended to publish it "thereafter" provided there were no legal reasons not to do so.
So, how did this get into the public domain before the family had sight of it? Vinny has a good panel to look at this and the other circumstances surrounding the death of Savita Halappanavar.
