insufficient evidence to bring further charges says lawyer

A leading lawyer working for the inquest into the hostel fire that killed 15 people including a Limerick Women has said today that there was insufficient evidence to bring further charges over the fire.

The inquest which started on Monday was set up to see if charges should be brought against the owners of the Hostel which was located in Queensland.

24 year-old Limerick woman Julie O’Keefe was one of the 15 who couldn’t escape the flames and smoke when the hostel she was staying in while backpacking, was set on fire by a homeless man Robert Long back in 2000.

The inquest is likely to conclude on Friday.
