PATRICK FITZGERALD, featured in RTÉ Prime Time’s shocking report about abuses in Cherry Orchard  Hospital, has contacted Local News to commend its follow-up coverage.

Special 
Report by
Paul Kelly
THAN

Mr Fitzgerald was “punished” by managers in the Sycamore unit for drawing attention to issues concerning the care of his wife, Anne. Relations become so poisoned that they now restrict his visit to 60 minutes a day. Before the row, he had been by his wife’s side for six hours daily and more.

 

Legal issues

 

However, a Local News investigation of the legal issues involved revealed that the ban on Mr Fitzgerald was almost certainly unconstitutional; and that his restricted
 access was, in addition, in violation of the
   European Convention on Human Rights.

    Interestingly, both Bunreacht na hÉireann
     and EU law speaks in similar language
      on two key issues: freedom of assembly;
       and rights to family life. Mr Fitzgerald
        is now considering the use of either, or
         both, to ensure full access to his spouse.
