ガーデイアン:ケリー未亡人が首相に質問状。娘もハットン調査委員会で証言か

「自殺」表現なし。

これでもなお、似非紳士朝日新聞は「自殺したケリー博士の未亡人が」などと書くのであろうか。

Special report: David Kelly
Family
Widow challenges 'Mitty' smear

Letter demands to know source of leaks

David Kelly's widow demanded to know who in the government was running a smear campaign against the scientist which saw him branded a fantasist, documents released by the Hutton inquiry reveal.

The letter from Janice Kelly's solicitor to a government lawyer was written after Tony Blair's official spokesman called the renowned weapons expert a "Walter Mitty" figure.

The spokesman, Tom Kelly, later apologised.

The letter is significant because it gives the first insight into the attitude of Dr Kelly's family.

A week today Mrs Kelly, and possibly one of her daughters, will testify before Lord Hutton. Their testimony could be damaging for the government.

In the letter the family accuse the government of leaking damaging information against Dr Kelly in an attempt to spin public opinion against him in the weeks after his death.

The letter, written by solicitor Peter Jacobsen days before the inquiry started hearing evidence, also demands to know who leaked the fact that Dr Kelly was being investigated for his media contacts long before he came forward to admit meeting Andrew Gilligan.

It reads: "I am aware of press reports quoting unnamed MoD spokesmen. For example, may I refer you to the leading article on page 1 of the Independent of Monday August 4 where, inter alia, it is asserted that, according to MoD sources, Dr Kelly was being investigated for his contacts with journalists long before the current difficulties; a copy is attached.

"If information of this nature is being disseminated, either formally or informally, I should like to know on whose authority this is being done.

"On the other hand, the government, for every good reason, is calling for restraint during the course of the inquiry which has, of course, commenced; on the other hand various arms of government appear, at least through the press, to be following a different course.

"If the report is true, may I please have details of the investigation?"

The letter continues: "Obviously, Dr Kelly has now been the subject of criticism in the media without the facts having been established by Lord Hutton. There is therefore, a danger the public will prejudge the issues on the basis of selective information filtered out through so-called sources."

Asked at the inquiry to explain his dismissal of Dr Kelly as a fantasist, Tom Kelly said: "I wanted the journalist to be aware of the possible questions and issues from the government's perspective. I was not expecting what I said to be reported in any way. It was a mistake."

In the letter Mrs Kelly also asks about claims that government documents relating to her husband had been shredded.

During his evidence last week, Mr Kelly also denied his attack revealed No 10's real thinking about the scientist.

The "Walter Mitty" attack left the government branded "heartless" by critics.
