Mark Duggan inquest: timetable for legal submissions, last evidence and summing up
28 November 2013
The final days of the inquest into the death of Mark Duggan begin with oral legal submissions to be heard on Friday 29 November. These will take place without the jury present but are open to the public - although the usual restrictions on reporting in the absence of the jury will apply.
The last of the evidence will be heard on Monday 2 and Tuesday 3 December, with a site visit planned for Monday as well. The coroner will then begin his summing up on Wednesday 4, due to last into Thursday.

‘The decision to publish the Cass report is an extraordinary victory for INQUEST… Belatedly, it lifts another layer of camouflage from the secrets, lies and impunity that prevail in large sections of the British state and make such terrible events not merely possible but more likely…What INQUEST, Celia Stubbs and countless others around the world – say, the Mothers and Grandmothers of the Disappeared in Argentina – keep reminding us is not just that the instincts of the powerful are wrong, but that they can also be defeated, however long it may take.’
– David Ransom, friend of Blair Peach and former editor of New Internationalist magazine
