Video: Private Investigation Into The Death Of Dr David Kelly
British MP Norman Baker Undertakes Private Investigation Into The Death Of Dr Kelly - Rowena Thursby - Kelly Investigation Group, UK
British LibDem MP Norman Baker is now two months into a private, year-long investigation into the death of Dr David Kelly, the scientist who found himself under siege after apparently accusing the government of ‘sexing up’ the case for war to a BBC journalist.
David Kelly was an employee of the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence (MoD), an expert in biological warfare, and a former United Nations weapons inspector in Iraq. His talk with a journalist about the British government's dossier on weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in Iraq inadvertently caused a major political scandal, and he was found dead days after appearing before a Parliamentary committee investigating it. The Hutton Inquiry, a public inquiry into his death, ruled that he had committed suicide. Now a British LibDem MP Norman Baker is two months into a private, year-long investigation into the suspicious death.
The Hutton Inquiry, framed as a battle between the government and the BBC, failed to probe the manner in which Dr David Kelly met his death.
Suicide was largely assumed, but peculiar elements to the death, e.g. the blunt gardening knife found at the scene, the fact that only a single ulnar artery was transected, the lack of blood splattering, and the tiny amount of co-proxamol residue found in Dr Kelly’s stomach point up the need for closer scrutiny.
In a debut TV appearance on the subject screened Sunday July 2 2006 - GMTV’s ‘The Sunday Programme’ - Mr Baker invited those with relevant information to contact him. He will be producing a report or book on his findings next year, but his stated aim is above all to arrive at the truth.
The programme will be followed by a major new article from Norman Baker in the Mail on Sunday to coincide with the third anniversary of Dr Kelly's death.
