THE PRELIMINARY INQUEST into the death of Savita Halappanavar took place today in Galway.
Savita’s husband, Praveen, attended the preliminary inquest, which took place at Galway Court House.
While speaking to TheJournal.ie earlier this month, the coroner for Galway West, Dr Ciaran MacLoughlin, said that the inquest would be “open and transparent”.
The inquest will take place at the beginning of April. It will look at the circumstances surrounding the death of Savita Halappanavar on 28 October last year, after she suffered a miscarriage while 17 weeks pregnant.
Yesterday, RTÉ reported that medical records have shown that Mrs Halappanavar did request a termination while in Galway University Hospital.
