The Gibraltar Inquest and Article 2

Local human rights lawyer, Padraig Ó Muirigh, will interview Barra McGrory QC about the inquests of Mairead Farrell, Dan McCann and Sean Savage in Gibraltar in 1988. Mr McGrory, whose late father PJ McGrory represented the families of the deceased at the inquest and also argued the legal case brought by their families to the European Court of Human Rights, will discuss the importance of the McCann v UK (1995) judgment, its implications for the development of the jurisprudence of Article 2 (The Right to Life) of the ECHR, and how the Convention rights have been employed by families who have lost loved ones during our recent conflict.
