"Do Not Destroy" letters

The Scottish COVID-19 Inquiry issued a series of “do not destroy” letters to a range of organisations or individuals that may hold information relevant to the Inquiry’s investigation.

Statement of approach to criticism

In the interests of fairness, the Inquiry intends to disclose serious criticism to the subject of that criticism. This will afford them the opportunity to consider their position and whether they may wish to apply for a Restriction Order to prevent the statement from being disclosed by the Inquiry. The Inquiry considers that this is in line with its human rights-based approach.
