Interested parties

If you have a legitimate interest in a coronal investigation you may register your interest by writing to the court. Interested parties are kept informed at key stages of the investigation, such as:

  • when the coroner decides either to dispense or proceed with an inquest
  • when the matter is listed for inquest
  • when the matter is finalised.

An interested party is not necessarily entitled to participate in the inquest and ask questions of witnesses unless leave to do so has been granted by the Coroner. An application for leave may be made to the Coroner at the beginning of the inquest.
