    Statement from Attorney-General Yvette D'Ath on Whiskey Au Go Go Inquest

     

     There is no doubt there is significant public interest in getting answers in relation to the Whiskey Au Go Go firebombing in 1973 in which 15 people died.

     

    Given recent events, witnesses who have previously not been willing to come forward, might now be willing to provide new information that will give us those answers.

     

    I had been awaiting the outcome of recent court proceedings, and will now write to the State Coroner instructing him to hold an inquest into the Whiskey Au Go Go case.
