KENSINGTON, U.K. - Sept. 14, 2017 - PRLog -- World-renowned Prof Chris Imafidon, who was given a front row seat at the much anticipated opening ceremony of the public inquiry into the Grenfell Tower Fire tragedy, has expressed his dis-belief at the conduct and disrespectful walk out on victims and survivors by the head of the inquiry, Sir Martin Moore-Bick.

Continuing Professor Imafidon, who had earlier expressed concern, said "I've never seen such breath-taking disrespect for the dead, shocking disregard for the living and dehumanising behaviour towards fellow human beings, contempt for the community and insult to the audience as exhibited by the leadership of the inquiry". Prof Imafidon, who chairs, the alliance of inner-city charities, ExcellenceinEducation which works with pupils and parents from Grenfell tower,  added "This is the worst exhibition of insensitivity, totally devoid of compassion to another human being by officialdom at the extreme. Why couldn't he acknowledge the questions of his dignified audience? Did he have to walk away to people who had keenly listened to him"

The Kensington MP, Emma Dent Coad, who sat two rows behind Prof Chris Imafidon, expressed her dissappointment at the conduct of the inquiry as   "[It was] cold and clinical process ".

Meanwhile, eminent QC Michael Mansfield, agreeing with Professor Imafidon said the conduct of the entire ceremony was "tasteless".

Sid-ali Atmani, a Grenfell Tower survivor who lived on the 14th floor, broke down in tears outside the inquiry. He said "It was bad. We are not going to give up. He should have at least stayed for another 10 minutes..."

Another Grenfell fire victim said, "I am concerned that witnesses won't be cross-examined in the inquiry, I went into the inquiry feeling cautiously optimistic, but came out more cautious than optimistic." As far as the timetable to produce a first report by Easter,  "We don't need some meandering inquiry that's going to take years and doesn't get to any answers."
