Catholic Ireland blames doctors for Savita Halappanavar's death?

Savita Halappanava

"I am not happy with it. They just set up a panel and didn't consult us at all. I am not happy with the HSE. The HSE are the ones who messed up Savita's care. Basically I am insisting on a public inquiry."

He said Savita's father, Andanappa Yalagi, had called him at 5 am yesterday to discuss progress on the inquiry. "They are very anxious to see what's happening. I said I had to keep the pressure on. I said I was not happy with the panel."

However, Reilly said a public inquiry would take longer to carry out than the private inquiry currently proposed and the answers to what happened would be "an awful lot" slower to come out.

Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform Brendan Howlin said today the Government is "open to any ideas" following Praveen's request for a full public inquiry.

But he stressed the Government does not want "a tribunal that goes on forever."
