The Office of the Children's Advocate (OCA) is pursuing civil action in relation to last year's deadly fire at the Walker's Place of Safety.
Two children died in the blaze on January 15, 2018.
Children's Advocate Diahann Gordon Harrison revealed on Wednesday that her office is in the process of filing a claim in civil court.
She said her office has also pressed the matter as far as it can in relation to whether anyone should be held criminally liable.
Speaking on The Morning Agenda on Power 106, the Children's Advocate outlined aspects of her office's investigation, starting with discussions with the police officer leading the investigation.
She noted that the fire took place sometime after the legal electricity service had been disconnected and the metre removed, “so one of the very questions that remain quite alive is whether or not there was an illegal connection at the material time.”
The Children's Advocate also wrote to the Police Commissioner in July 2018 and sent a copy of that correspondence to the Director of Public Prosecutions, indicating her office’s position that criminal liability was suspected, and had even drafted a proposed indictment, including “possible charges that we thought may be relevant, given all the circumstances.”
