Censoring of the Monageer probe is absolute scandal

IT is unacceptable in a mature European parliamentary democracy that the report of an inquiry into the deaths of four people -- including two children murdered by one or both of their parents -- and the dealings of state agencies with the family, should be censored.

Publication on Tuesday of the Monageer inquiry report with substantial factual background obliterated by black ink at the behest of the Minister for Children is the type of scandalous government conduct and cover-up expected only in totalitarian dictatorships.
