Dr David Kelly -

The Attorney-General has informed the House of Commons that he is not ordering an inquest into the death of Dr David Kelly who died in July 2003 - see Telegraph 9th June.  This case has been particularly controversial.  The Hutton Inquiry decided that Dr Kelly had committed suicide.  Lord Hutton stated that - " ... the principal cause of death was bleeding from incised wounds to the left wrist which Dr Kelly inflicted on himself with the knife found beside his body."  See Hutton Inquiry and Cause of Death

The Attorney's statement is perhaps unlikely to be the last we hear of this matter.
