Renewed call for inquest

Doctors renew call for Kelly inquest

Published on Saturday 21 April 2012 00:03

DOCTORS campaigning for a fresh inquiry into the death of scientist David Kelly have submitted a new application calling for Attorney General Dominic Grieve to ask the High Court to order an inquest.

Mr Grieve rejected calls for an inquest last June, following a lengthy review of the case of Dr Kelly, whose body was found in 2003, shortly after he was identified as the source of a report about the government’s dossier on Iraqi weapons of mass destruction.

The attorney general found there was no possibility that an inquest would reach a different conclusion from the Hutton Inquiry, which found in 2004 that Dr Kelly committed suicide.

But Dr Andrew Watt and Brian Spencer argue that Mr Grieve relied on a “misleading and inadequate assessment” of evidence that Dr Kelly’s body may have been moved in the hour after its initial discovery by volunteer searchers.

(N.B. Dr Andrew Watt has recently opened a new blog entitled "Who Killed David Kelly". It can be found here, and relates to his provisional attempt at writing a book of the same name.)

In view of the attorney general, Dominic Grieve's, personal decision to investigate the evidence into Dr Kelly's death, rather than the recognised legal channel of a coroner's inquest, could I please ask people to sign the epetition calling for the AG's resignation.
