Scottish Liberal Democrats in Fife have welcomed the announcement of a significant independent multi-agency case review into events around the tragic death of Mikaeel Kular.
Councillor Tim Brett, leader of the Liberal Democrat group on Fife Council and previous chair of the social work committee until May 2012 said:
"Mikaeel Kular's tragic death was sorely felt by all the community in Fife.
"This wide-ranging and thorough review is in keeping with what the Liberal Democrat group wished to see implemented. We look forward to the findings being announced in December so that all agencies can move swiftly to learn any and all lessons from Mikaeel Kular's tragic death. This is what is needed to reassure people in Fife and beyond that the highest standards are being maintained in these key services."
