Coronial Process must be respected

Wed Oct 16 2019

President Tim Game SC has today issued a media release stating media commentary regarding a leaked draft report of the Deputy State Coroner in relation to the current inquest in relation to festival deaths is premature and fails to respect the coronial process.

“The Coroner’s role is to investigate the circumstances of certain deaths and make any relevant recommendations for systemic change to Government. It is then wholly a matter for Government as to how those recommendations are dealt with” Mr Game said.

A full copy of the media release is available here.
