The Team at KOD Lyons were delighted to act on behalf of three applicants who received declarations from the High Court that the Commission of Investigation wrongly denied them their right, pursuant to Section 34 of the Commission of Investigation Act 2004, to reply to a draft of the Commission’s findings. The declaration will now appear alongside the Commission’s Final report on the Government website and it will be deposited for permanent preservation in the Oireachtas Library alongside the Commission’s report.
While the declaration is welcomed it is now hoped that the Government will use the opportunity to drastically amend the redress scheme and extend the scope of available relief.
