Andrew Ritchie QC argues on security concerns heard ahead of Tunisia inquest
News | Wed 14th Dec, 2016
Andrew Ritchie QC, who is representing some of the victims’ families in the Tunisia terrorist attack inquest, argued that “a full and fearless investigation” required a policy of openness. “Particularly in this context where we have UK citizens travelling abroad and accepting risk, not only in Tunisia but around the world,” he added.
Andrew has claimed at previous hearings that the government failed in its duty of care in not persuading tour operators to stop sending tourists to Tunisia following an attack on Tunis’s Bardo National Museum.
A total of 38 holidaymakers were killed in the attack in June 2015, all of whom were Tui customers, 30 of them were Bristish.
Andrew was instructed by Irwin Mitchell Solicitors.
The inquest begins on 16 January 2017.
