Following a meeting at which community representatives expressed their dismay at the conduct of Inner North London Senior Coroner Mary Hassell to Justice Minister Dr Phillip Lee MP, Vice President Marie van der Zyl, said:

“As part of an interfaith and cross-party delegation, I made it clear to Justice Minister Dr Phillip Lee MP that Inner North London Senior Coroner Mary Hassell lacks any respect for the diverse communities she is meant to serve. I urged him that Ms Hassell must be made accountable for her actions, which are causing so much distress. Dr Lee said he took the views of the Jewish and Muslim communities very seriously, and would be speaking to the Chief Coroner, His Honour Judge Mark Lucraft QC, about the meeting.”
