Wave of unease at the HET has been vindicated

OVER the last six years, there has been an increasing chorus of criticism of the operations of the HET – from families, NGOs, lawyers and academics.

The recent HMIC report into the HET has vindicated the concerns of these people and groups and confirmed the basis of many of their criticisms.

The report does fall short in many respects.

That said, the overall conclusion that the HET has failed families is beyond doubt.

To claim or insinuate otherwise is to impugn the professionalism and sincerity of the families, NGOs, lawyers and academics who have repeatedly voiced their concerns.
