Commenting on the High Court judgment of 27 March on the Judicial Review brought by the Sargeant family against the Welsh Government, a spokesperson for the Independent QC Investigation said:

‘The Investigator, Mr. Bowen QC, has noted today’s judgment in the judicial review claim brought by the Sargeant Family and its outcome. The claim did not challenge the actions of the Investigator whose independence and ability to continue to conduct an independent investigation are emphasised in the court’s judgment. The Investigator and his team stand ready to resume their work and look forward to receiving proposals from the Welsh Government for taking forward the Investigation.’
