Evidence relating to the death of Government weapons inspector David Kelly is to be kept secret for 70 years, it has been reported.
A highly unusual ruling by Lord Hutton, who chaired the inquiry into Dr Kelly's death, means medical records including the post-mortem report will remain classified until after all those with a direct interest in the case are dead, the Mail on Sunday reported.
And a 30-year secrecy order has been placed on written records provided to Lord Hutton's inquiry which were not produced in evidence.
This stinks. The 'why' is obvious. This comes just in time for Blair's trial on Friday regarding war crimes and the 'legality' of invading Iraq. I'm trying not to be cynical because I really hope Blair is held accountable, but in a country where scum like Hutton can pass rulings like this, I have little hope.
