    Default Prime Time SPECIAL Wed 21/11/2012 @ 21:35: Miriam interviews Praveen Halappanavar


    Unusually for Wednesday, Prime Time are on air for a Special tonight where Miriam O’Callaghan interviews Praveen Halappanavar, husband of Savita.


    Today saw Praveen Halappanavar saying he will not meet the chairman of the Health Service Executive Inquiry into his wife Savita's death - the family wants a public inquiry funded by the Government.

    Mr Halappanavar said he has no confidence in the HSE to lead the investigation, as he fears there could be some bias if it is carried out by people paid by the Executive. He went public with his story because "there was nothing happening for two weeks. I had to answer the family back home... They couldn't believe it. It was such a simple case." He said "they should have thought about the bigger life when they couldn't save the baby".

    Meanwhile, the Irish Patients' Association has asked Health Minister James Reilly to allow the independent health watchdog, the Health Information and Quality Authority, to conduct the investigation.

    … and so it goes on, and on. Tonight Prime Time’s interview should be well worth a look ..

    Money making is all the abortion industry care about. This woman's death will be used as propaganda, as usual. Shame on them.

    Clips of it on Drivetime now.

    Sounds like it's going to be just like an edition of "Miriam Meets" - with Mammaries O'Callaghan doing her whispering, choked up, just-on-the-verge-of-tears routine throughout.

    It's an important interview.

    But I wish someone other than Miriam O'Callaghan was doing it.

    Praveen Halappanavar.

    It may be a small detail, but it's nice to see that unfortunate individuals who are thrust into the centre of tragedy/public controversy don't always have to sacrifice their surnames.
    It's toasted.

    Much as I feel sympathy for the man, perhaps he would be better served by not lawyering up.
    He as a visitor to our shores must understand that refusing to meet the head of the investigation will do him no favours with the wider public.

    With the Irish history of public inquiry's we would not have a result this decade and would just end up enriching parasitic legals.

    He's a taxpayer, as was his late wife.

    The mans wife died in the HSE's care and you are calling him over demanding, as a visitor to these shores? He lived here with his wife, who I assume as a dentist was a taxpayer. Over demanding my eye and the attempt by some people on this site to cast a slur on this man is truly disgusting.

    Simple fact is the government seem to have no clue how to handle this properly and are making a hames of it so far.

    They won't have much appetite for it, but RTE should be disclosing whether this interview was arranged via an intermediary and if any questions have been declared off-limits in advance or other conditions imposed to obtain the interview.

    I agree about the governments handling, it had the bang of an omnishambles off it.

    Regarding the first part of your post, my only point was that perhaps he is being badly advised. No more no less.
