MP says files into Kelly death have been wiped

AN MP conducting an investigation into the death of Dr David Kelly last night claimed his computer files have been wiped.

Norman Baker, Lewes MP, said he has evidence to prove Dr Kelly did not die as a result of suicide.

The Liberal Democrat said he had told police he believes computer files at his Lewes constituency office have been remotely wiped.

The MP told the BBC: "What my investigations to date have demonstrated is that there are significant medical doubts from professional medical people about the alleged cause of death.

"Indeed there are a number of specialist medical experts who tell me that it is clinically impossible for Dr David Kelly to have died the way that was described.

"I am suggesting the explanation for suicide simply doesn't add up."

Dr Kelly was the Ministry of Defence scientist whose conversations with a BBC journalist led to reports that the government "sexed up" the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction. In July 2003 he was found dead with his wrists slashed.
