The following extract is from the evidence of PC Sawyer given on the afternoon of Tuesday 2nd September 2003:
13 MR KNOX: Mr Sawyer, you will recall that this morning you
14 said that amongst Dr Kelly's things that had been found
15 on the search of the premises was a photograph which
16 I think you said might have aroused some interest.
17 I wonder if you could tell us something about the
18 photograph that was found.
19 A. Certainly. It was found in the study of Dr Kelly at
20 11.45 by one of my searchers, PC Slyfield. It was
21 seized because, at the time, it showed Dr Kelly and
22 another person standing outside the Parliament building
23 in Moscow. It was after the coup in Moscow and the
24 Parliament building showed a certain amount of damage.
25 The photograph was in fact dated 11th of the 8th 1993.
1 PC Slyfield showed it to DC Burton who was the Special
2 Branch officer with him and they both agreed the second
3 person in the photograph bore a very striking
4 resemblance to Andrew Gilligan. The photograph was then
5 seized and produced as an exhibit. That is what I was
6 referring to in my statement.
We can conclude that at least one Special Branch officer, DC Burton, was present during the search of the Kelly home.
We know from other evidence that the Metropolitan Police Special Branch visited Dr. Kelly's office at the Ministry of Defence.
