You may remember Dr David Kelly, the government advisor on WMDs, who died suddenly back in 2003. The Hutton Report conducted by none other than Lord Hutton concluded that Kelly took his own life. But there was doubt about the findings of the report and it was challenged by one Dr Michael Powers QC who claimed a cover up.
Of course the Government denies any wrong doing in the case. It come as no surprise to me that the post mortem results and undisclosed evidence has been locked away for 70 years.
A letter disclosing the 70-year restriction was written by Nick Graham, assistant head of legal and democratic services at Oxfordshire Council.
It states: ‘Lord Hutton made a request for the records provided to the inquiry, not produced in evidence, to be closed for 30 years, and that medical (including post-mortem) reports and photographs be closed for 70 years.’
EDIT: More to the point if it was that important why wasn’t it used as evidence in the hearing?
Quite harsh for a ‘simple’ suicide don’t you think? There can only be one reason why the powers that be want to keep the photos secret for seventy years and that is probably because they show the bullet hole in the back of the good Doctors head. One can only surmise Lord Hutton has his price!
Don’t tell me the government had nothing to do with the death of David Kelly I just don’t believe it. If the Government of the day and currently have had no input to the findings of the Hutton report why is there a need to lock it all away? By the time these records are released for public scrutiny all the
main guilty bastards er sorry main players will all be dead and unable to be bought to trial. What a bunch of dry gulchers we have in office.
RIP Dr Kelly your time will come.
