Attorney General moves to quash Ella’s inquest and hold a new one
Jan 11, 2019 —
A belated Happy New Year to everyone. If you have not heard the fantastic news, the Attorney General has agreed to support our request for another inquest into Ella’s death. This is a momentous day for us and a step towards finding out the truth of how Ella died. The fact is that I couldn’t have done it without your support in signing the petition, and all your encouraging comments along the way. Ella’s siblings and I want to thank you all.
This may have taken six painful months but we have got there in the end. But this is just the first phase as there is another hurdle to get over. The fight continues as we need to convince the High Court to quash Ella’s original inquest and order a new one. Although we have the Attorney General’s backing the ultimate decision lies with a High Court Judge.
It’s not going to be an easy journey, but we knew that from the outset, and we are determined to get justice for Ella. Having the effects of air pollution recorded on her death certificate would be a legal first. It would send a clear message to our government that they must tackle the deadly impact of air pollution.
Now I need your help again. I am looking to raise funds to get the best legal representation possible. Your support could mean the difference between life and death for other children and adults living in our polluted cities.
