LOOKS LIKE AN INTERESTING DAY TOMORROW AT THE 7/7 INQUEST
this procedural order and the timetable below it looks like the Home Secretary is squaring up tomorrow to try to force Assistant Deputy Coroner, Dame Heather Hallett to hold her 7/7 inquest in camera to hear some sensitive evidence. Should be an interesting dual. It will be interesting to see what will happen if she holds that the current state of Coronial law actually prevents her from going into camera - which is what a lot of lawyers in this area think. Will that mean that she forces MI5 to give evidence in public or will that evidence not be heard at all or will she find a way of protecting national security whilst keeping the inquest as open as possible? Watch this space.
