Damages of £5,000 for delay to an Article 2 inquest
The latest decision from across the Irish Sea is a wake-up call for coroners and public authorities managing inquests where Article 2 investigative obligations are engaged.
While this is a decision from a Northern Irish court, the principles could easily apply to both England and Wales.
So, the key message is this: unless there are justifiable reasons for a coroner not bringing a case to an inquest, then damages awards could be made against both the coroner and any other public authority that has contributed to the delay by their own inaction.
