A public enquiry will not allow the victims/residents of the Tower to have any part in the proceedings. Their voices need to be heard. They need to be able to cross examine, ask questions and apply for the right to present their own professionals.
The only way they will be able to do this is by demanding an inquest.
Don't let Theresa may carry out a public licence enquiry so she can hide things from the victims and their families.
Sophie Khan, solicitor for the victims of the Lakanal House tower block fire in Camberwell in 2009, says that a public inquiry is NOT the right way to pursue an investigation into the events surrounding the Grenfell Tower fire.
“The right way is INQUESTS. The families have a right to participate ……… the Coroner is independent of the Government. In a public inquiry it is very much Government led, Government controlled, Government outcome”.
When asked, “Do you think it’s an absolutely worked out position that if the Government goes for a public inquiry and NOT an inquest, they will be not subject to the same scrutiny?” Ms Khan said, “YES, that is correct,; because in an inquest they (the Government) lose control ”
