Summer edition of Inquest Law magazine out now
28 August 2014
The latest edition of Inquest Law magazine has now been published and is available to subscribers.
In Inquest Law 30, Dexter Dias QC writes about the legacy of the police shooting of Cherry Groce following the inquest into her death, examining what it has taught us about police-community relations, access to justice and the intrinsic value of historic inquests. Fiona McGhie and Nancy Collins of Irwin Mitchell solicitors discuss the effect that clarification of what constitutes the deprivation of liberty will have on jury inquests and article 2 compliance.
There is also an extensive legal update and thirteen individual casenotes on inquests covering deaths involving the police, prison deaths, deaths in mental health settings and in immigration detention.

‘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
