The council where the Peter Connelly case occurred is in the news again, this time potentially facing a High Court battle after refusing to hand over documents relating to social workers’ care of the child, according to reports.
The controversy is around disciplinary proceedings for Dr Jerome Ikwueke, accused of missing chances to save Peter’s life.
Ikwueke’s lawyer reportedly said: “We have been trying for some weeks polite requests and they have got us nowhere. We have investigated and considered the possibility of a subpoena, which we could issue today or tomorrow in the High Court.
“That gives then seven days to turn up with the documents, which is not ideal.”
Ooh someone’s in trouble…
