The investigation into the death of weapons inspector Dr David Kelly is likely to be reopened.
The case has concerned Attorney General Dominic Grieve and - as the highest ranking law officer in England - he is considering an inquiry to review the suicide finding. At the same time Justice Secretary Ken Clarke is considering a request from campaigning doctors to release medical files relating to the death.
Medical experts have repeatedly questioned whether Dr Kelly could have taken his own life in the circumstances described by Lord Hutton upon the completion of his inquiry.
In January, it came to light that Lord Hutton secretly classified vital evidence relating to Dr Kelly's death, including medical and scientific records, the post-mortem report and photographs, for 70 years. This information was not included in the Hutton Report. A 30-year ban was placed on 'records provided which were not produced in evidence'.
A number of doctors have worked ceaselessly to secure an inquest into this case. They deserve their inquiry.
