An inquest was the normal method, absent an exceptional set of circumstances, of the state discharging its investigative obligation under the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 Art.2 where there had been a death of a prisoner in custody; where an inquest did not bring within its scope sentencing policy and broad issues of government funding or policy, it was not incumbent upon the state under Art.2 to set up a public inquiry.
