Coroner's Court

The Coroner has power to inquire into an unnatural death, a fire or accident that causes injury to a person or property and the circumstances of the disappearance of a person from, or within, the State [see Coroners Act 2003 (SA) s 21].

A Coroner may re-open an inquest at any time [Coroners Act 2003 (SA) s 26] but must not in the inquest make any finding, or suggestion, of criminal or civil liability, [Coroners Act 2003 (SA) s 25(3)], see: Coroner's Inquests.
