Extracts from the above Seminars Summary

The victim's voice

'Frank Mullane, brother of Julia Pemberton who was killed in a domestic homicide along with her son, spoke of his input into the new statutory domestic homicide review Multi-Agency Guidance...he helped to write innovative leaflets produced by the Home Office to advise families. Most memorable was his description of the need for a ‘wide-angle lens’ in reviews, including victims’ and perpetrators’ families, friends and colleagues.

Emotion, he said, should not be shied away from as it helped to embed learning.

Families can helpfully keep an eye on progress with recommendations when they might otherwise be forgotten'.

The law and politics of investigation

Professor Jill Manthorpe, author of The Age of the Inquiry pointed out that 'the many 'hidden inquiries' require just as much rigour as those which are high profile'.

She added 'A tendency to seek evidence only from powerful professionals and experts in reviews should be resisted' and

'the more powerful the voice, the more likely they are to be asked to turn up whereas those with the most crucial information could be the cleaners'.
