Edwin Poots backs family over injuries to mum's body
The case of a Co Tyrone woman whose body sustained more than 30 fractures after her death is to be raised with the Attorney General.
The family of Strabane 78-year-old Maureen McGinley have campaigned for the truth of what happened since their mother's death in 2007 at Altnagelvin hospital, before her remains were taken to Belfast for a post-mortem examination.
Now the relatives have secured the support of Health Minister Edwin Poots who is to take the case to the Attorney General John Larkin.
The move was welcomed by the chair of the health committee at Stormont, Sue Ramsey, who said she accompanied the family in a meeting with the minister.
The Sinn Fein representative said: “As chair of the health committee, I am determined that the McGinley family find the truth to what happened to their mother Maureen's body. This family deserve the truth.”
