Bourke Street Inquest announced

Bourke Street Inquest announced

The Victorian Coroner Her Honour Sara Hinchey has announced she will hold an inquest into the Bourke Street attack, which left six people dead and many others injured. The first directions hearing is to be held on 20 July 2017.

Inquests are public hearings concerning deaths caused by accidents or in unnatural or unexpected circumstances.

With the consent of the Coroner, a person or family with an interest in the hearing can have a lawyer represent them, ask questions of witnesses, and make suggestions to the Coroner.

We wish to extend our deepest sympathies to the loved ones of the injured, and those who died, as a result of the tragic incident on Friday 20 January 2017. Our continual thoughts are also with those who witnessed the traumatic scene that unfolded.

Located on the corner of Bourke Street and William Street ourselves, our experiences from that day have given us a deep appreciation of the trauma inflicted on the people of our beautiful city.

We offer our support, knowledge and services to you.
