Savita Halappanavar's husband hints authorities tampering with evidence

Savitas abortion requests missing

"I wouldn't see it as a U-turn. At all stages, the first thing the Minister wanted was absolute clarity about this death," the spokesman said.

Reilly is due to meet staff from Galway University Hospital.

A special board meeting of HIQA was held yesterday and is set to reconvene. A spokesman would only say the board was considering the request received from the HSE. O'Brien said they were pursuing their own inquiry now termed a "clinical review" - despite Praveen's refusal to participate.

He said even if Savita's family did not cooperate, the review "must be brought to a conclusion".

There was "no way" the inquiry could be stopped as it would be "criminally negligent" not to proceed.

He accepted the HSE had not been "as aware as it should have been" of the wider context and focused on the "clinical aspects" in its inquiry.
