Vale Senior Member Maurice Spillane


The Judges, Members and staff of the SAT are deeply saddened by the passing of Senior Member Maurice Spillane on Thursday 28 May 2020.

Maurice has been a member of the Tribunal since its inception in 2005 and a senior Member of the Tribunal since 2011. He was a much admired and respected colleague and friend to us all.

Maurice served with distinction in all streams of the Tribunal’s work, and was especially renowned for his outstanding abilities as a mediator, where his common sense, kindness and good humour assisted in the resolution of even the most complex and protracted disputes.

We extend our sincere and heartfelt condolences to Maurice’s family and friends. He will be greatly missed by all at the SAT.
