Case Ref : 20030717, Kelly, David
Kelly walked a mile (1.6 km) from his house to Harrowdown Hill. It appears he ingested up to 29 tablets of co-proxamol, an analgesic drug, then cut his left wrist, severing his ulnar artery, with a pruning knife he had owned since his youth. It was subsequently established that neither the knife nor the blister packs showed Kelly's fingerprints on their surfaces.
This case has been covered in a book by Norman Baker. It is widely believed by medical experts and others that Kelly was murdered, to prevent him from testifying about Iraq’s non existent “weapons of mass distraction”. His evidence could have exposed Tony Blairs lies to Parliament about "Weapon's of Mass Distruction", and established that Tony Blair's invasion of Iraq and the murder of hundreds of thousands of innocent people was illegal.
