Practice and Procedure

R (on the application of NEIL SHARMAN) v HM CORONER FOR INNER NORTH LONDON (2005)

PUBLISHED May 18, 2005

A verdict of unlawful killing was quashed as the evidence was such that a coroner's jury would have had difficulty in being able to safely conclude, beyond reasonable doubt, that the claimant chief inspector had not discharged his firearm in the honest belief, however mistaken, that a fellow officer was under imminent threat of being shot.
