The report of an international expert group into the death of Savita Halappanavar is to be published before the end of the week.

The report will incorporate feedback from Mrs Halappanavar’s husband, Praveen.

It was discussed at Cabinet today.

Mrs Halappanavar was 17 weeks pregnant when she died last October at Galway University Hospital following a miscarriage.

Earlier this year, an inquest jury returned a verdict of medical misadventure and endorsed nine recommendations made by the coroner.
