HSE must not be part of inquiry, says brother

THE brother of Savita Halappanavar has demanded that the inquiry into his sister's death be fully independent of the HSE.

Santosh Yalagi said the circumstances of his only sister's death had left the family devastated and insisted that an independent inquiry was needed to ensure that no other family had to suffer a similar tragedy.

"We need an independent inquiry absolutely. That should be the way this is handled now because what happened to my sister should never be allowed to happen to anyone else," he told the Irish Independent.

However, Health Minister James Reilly insisted that the HSE's national incident management team would carry out the examination of her care and death.
