This morning, the Chief Justice ruled that the Medical Board used the wrong test and was influenced by irrelevant facts when assessing the quality of the autopsy performed in the Henry Keogh case.
In doing so, Justice Doyle quashed the board's decision to dismiss a complaint of unprofessional conduct by former chief forensic pathologist Doctor Colin Manock.
Quite aside from the significance of this for Keogh, it means at the very best the board didn't know what it was doing.
Once again, the Keogh case has exposed the failure of our public institutions to do their jobs properly… their lack of accountability… and a government that doesn't seem to care.
Graham Archer has the latest chapter in this appalling saga.
