Media coverage of the Inquests (11 February 2014)
Having considered what has been published following the hearing on 5 February 2014, the Coroner wants to make the following quite clear:
The Inquests are shortly to begin. The case will be heard by a jury. They must decide it solely on the evidence they hear in court. It is of fundamental importance that the proceedings are reported accurately and in a balanced way. Nothing (whether by way of comment or otherwise) should be published (including by way of online commentary or social networking sites) which could run the risk of prejudicing the outcome of the proceedings.
The Coroner has the power to refer anything published to the Attorney General if, in his view, it may amount to a contempt of court.
