Inquest in England

Following Peter's mysterious and still unexplained death whilst in police custody on the evening of 12 November 2011, his body was repatriated to England and that event triggered another inquest under the laws of England and Wales. Peter's family had already appointed a law firm and a respected English barrister and the inquest was opened at Warrington on 18 January 2012, by Her Majesty's Senior Coroner for Cheshire. The inquest was adjourned for further investigation and over time has remained adjourned pending the outcome of the family's quest for an open inquest in Cape Town, South Africa, where all the relevant evidence and main witnesses reside. When further news is available, it will be published on this site.
