Written answers (Question to Justice)

As I indicated in my reply to the Deputy on May 7th, 2013, many factors influence the time it takes for post-mortem reports to be received by a Coroner from the pathologist concerned. It is my understanding that the details sought by the pathologist in this particular case have now been received, and that a report should be available in the very near future. I would strongly urge the family in question to contact the Kerry North Coroner's Office directly, where they will be kept informed of any developments.
