On 1st December 2022 a scheme was approved by the Government to provide compensation to the families of David Fuller’s victims. The relatives of the victims will be able to claim for psychiatric trauma and financial losses caused by his offences.

Fuller admitted to sexually abusing more than 100 female bodies in hospital morgues between 2008 and 2020. In December 2021 he was sentenced to two full life-sentences for the murders of two women in 1987, and a concurrent 12-year term for his abuse of women in hospital mortuaries.

An inquiry into how Fuller was able to carry out his crimes undetected for so many years was announced in 2021. Peter Skelton KC and Shahram Sharghy were jointly instructed by Dean Wilson LLP, Irwin Mitchell and Enable Law who between them are representing almost all of the immediate and extended families of Fuller’s victims. Peter and Shahram were instrumental in devising the scheme and taking part in the negotiation process to ensure that it was fair and just for the families of the victims to claim compensation.
