The Death of Dr. David Kelly
17th July 2003

Posted in > >

Dr. Kelly was one of the leading British authorities on biological warfare. His death - officially recorded by the coroner as a suicide - contains to be surrounded by a swirl of rumour, including claims that he was murdered by British intelligence on orders from the government.

The events leading up to his death were so controversial that an official public enquiry into his death was set up - eventually leading to the Hutton Enquiry, whose report found that the Government was in no way implicated in his death. The report - which also effectively 'cleared' the Government of manipulating intelligence to justify the Iraq War - failed to assuage a significant body of public opinion that Kelly had been misused by the Government and media.
