Ascertaining the reasons for the death of a child in Great Britain

26. 03. 2008

Ascertaining the reasons for the death of a child in Great Britain

An inquiry into the death of a child of a Czech citizen in a hospital in Great Britain was performed on the basis of a complaint from Senator Božena Sekaninová. The child had died in a British hospital in unexplained circumstances and the mother had not received an autopsy protocol or other information regarding the reasons for the death of her daughter. Although the Defender did not have a direct mandate in the matter (the complainant challenged the procedure of British institutions), the deputy of the Defender provided her with detailed legal advice for dealing with the situation (via the embassy in Great Britain) as well as information on the potential for further intervention of the Defender towards Czech authorities.
