A group of doctors is preparing to mount a legal challenge if the Attorney General this week refuses an inquest into the death of weapons inspector Dr David Kelly.
Dominic Grieve, who has spent nine months considering the case for a new inquiry, is expected to announce his decision on Thursday.
Campaigners are braced for him to deliver a ‘No’ verdict after Prime Minister David Cameron said last month he did not want the Kelly files re-opened.
If this happens, the doctors – who have unearthed mountains of evidence which casts doubt on the Hutton Inquiry verdict of suicide – will lodge an immediate judicial review. The Attorney General would then have to justify his decision in the High Court.
Last night Dr Stephen Frost said: ‘We doctors and lawyers are unanimous in our view that the case for an inquest into Dr Kelly’s death as presented by us to the Attorney General is unanswerable in law.
