EWCA Civ 390
Public scrutiny and the involvement of a deceased's next of kin were not requirements that needed to be discharged for a State to fulfill its duty to investigate a death under Art.2 European Convention on Human Rights. An inquest jury could give a verdict of neglect when necessary so as to comply with Art.2 of the Convention. * Leave to appeal to the House of Lords granted.
