[2014] EWHC 194 (Admin)

The Secretary of State for the Home Department had provided no rational reasons for refusing to set up a statutory inquiry into the death of a man from ingesting polonium 210 at a London restaurant, probably administered by two Russian nationals. The coroner conducting the inquest into the death had identified the public interest in establishing whether it was a state-sponsored assassination carried out on British territory on the orders of the Russian state and, in the light of relevant material covered by public interest immunity, a statutory inquiry was the only means by which that issue could be investigated.
