Press Release 5.12.14
Patient Focus and SOS ltd welcome but are not surprised by the large number of women who have applied for redress under the Symphysiotomy Payment Scheme.
We are vindicated in our position that we represented a large number of survivors who wished to avail of a non-confrontational, humane and speedy process. It was difficult to get this message across to the general public because of the hostile campaign that was waged against our clients.
We regret that our clients views were not adequately represented in some media and that some national organisations whose stated mission is too represent victims of human rights breaches choose not to hear our clients.
We rejoice for our clients who after a long dignified struggle can find some closure.
Sheila OConnor and Tom Moran
