Praveen Halappanavar's solicitor has called for a full and public apology to be made to the grieving widower by the HSE.
Gerard O'Donnell said his client had been left traumatised after being kept in the dark in relation to the draft report into the death of his wife Savita when all other interested bodies were furnished with details.
"He deserves, and we are calling for, a full public apology from the HSE," he added.
"They should have ensured that they had in place safety guidelines to ensure that this would not happen.
"How any one person was presented with the full report is beyond me, they should have been given extracts relating only to themselves."
Mr O'Donnell has written to the HSE and the Department of Health seeking answers as to why the draft report was not provided to her husband and how the report was leaked.
However, he has not yet received any response.
