Available to watch now: Pete Weatherby QC speaks at JUSTICE event – Wednesday 23 June at 5pm: The COVID-19 Inquiry: ensuring justice for bereaved people and survivors

14 June 2021

With the Prime Minister pledging to hold a statutory public inquiry into the pandemic in Spring 2022, it is fundamental that this inquiry is established and run in a way that reflects the needs of bereaved people and ensures public trust. The inquiry must be able to independently investigate failures by Government, establish a truthful and transparent account of what happened, and learn lessons from previous mistakes to prevent recurrence of what went wrong.

Chaired by Sir Robert Owen, this event will be a timely opportunity to consider JUSTICE’s recommendations from their 2019 When Things Go Wrong report on how inquiries can best serve the public interest, with a panel of expert and informed speakers, including our Pete Weatherby QC.
