Another request for inquest for David Kelly

From Dr. Stephen Frost, one of the doctors making this request of the Attorney General:

am one of the doctors who have been fighting for an inquest into the
suspicious death of Dr David Kelly in July 2003, pointing out that due
process of the law has been subverted by four successive UK
governments, including the present, by their not allowing, using a
variety of highly dubious tactics, the legally required inquest to take

of the increasingly obvious anxiety, even desperation, of successive
governments to block a formal inquest and the disingenuous reasons
given for not holding an inquest, many fear that there has been a
cover-up of epic proportions and many others have wondered what it is
that is so important to hide that precludes an inquest taking place.
are some who suspect that Dr Kelly was murdered and of course without
an inquest that possibility has not been excluded.  If he was murdered
by the state, or with the knowledge of the state, and the murder has
been covered up, that would constitute criminalization of the state and
would fatally undermine trust, and the notion of democracy, and the
delicate relationship of those who govern and those who allow
themselves to be governed.

normal circumstances, in England and Wales, a coroner holds an inquest
into a suspicious death.  There appears to be no intention to hold an
inquest into the death of Dr David Kelly.  This is a unique and
unacceptable state of affairs.  At medical school we were taught that
without coroners and inquests nobody is safe.  The Coroner speaks for
the dead to protect the living…

Thank you for posting this Meryl!

If readers click on Stephen's name they will see the rest of the article consisting of the application to the Attorney General and covering letter.

The application, amongst other things, clearly demonstrates that the body was moved by a third party following its discovery by the two volunteer searchers and that therefore Lord Hutton's opinion that Dr Kelly committed suicide isn't safe. The Attorney General has previously vehemently denied the fact that the body was moved.

I invite readers to come to their own conclusions!
