Missing Persons Group
In 2011, I was invited to attended a Parliamentary Meeting of the Cross-Parliamentary Missing Persons Group in late 2010 and the follow on Parliamentary Inquiry, , at the House of Commons. This Inquiry was aimed at looking into the practical and legal implications of when people go missing. I was particularly keen to assist the Meeting and subsequent Inquiry insofar as it looked into the legal problems encountered when people go missing, in particular the legal implications for the missing person and their friends and family. The existing law relating to Missing Persons is not fit for purpose. This whole area is ripe for law reform and is currently before Parliament, gaining cross party support, where the existing law relating to the 7 year presumption of death and the issue of managing a missing persons legal affairs, in the short term, is being considered.
