The title of the email was:
David Kelly - Conflict in the photographic evidence
The text of the email to Chief Constable Sarah Thornton and Mr. Malcolm Hopgood was as follows:
This email is addressed to Chief Constable Sarah Thornton and Mr. Malcolm Hopgood of Thames Valley Police.
Chief Constable Thornton and Mr. Hopgood,
The statement about the death of Dr. David Kelly made to the House of Commons on 9th June 2011 by the Attorney General, Dominic Grieve QC MP was, in my view, dishonest.
One material dishonesty by Mr. Grieve relates to the photographic evidence indicating that the body of Dr. David Kelly was moved. Contrary to such evidence Mr. Grieve claimed that the body had not been moved.
Lord Hutton (paragraph 151 of his report) stated that he had seen a photograph with Dr. Kelly's head against the tree.
Dr. Richard Shepherd (page 5 of his report of 16th March 2011) stated that there was a significant gap between the head and the tree. That gap, as Thames Valley Police knows, was sufficient to allow ambulanceman Dave Bartlett to stand in that gap and make an assessment of whether Dr. Kelly was or was not dead and assist his colleague Vanessa Hunt with the ECG assessment of death.
It seems that there is photographic evidence showing the body in two different positions.
At least that is the position if both Lord Hutton and Dr. Shepherd are to be believed.
Despite the evidence that the body was photographed in two distinct positions, on 9th June 2011 the Attorney General perversely rejected the possibility that Dr. Kelly's body has been moved.
If photographs exist which show the body of Dr. Kelly in two positions then Mr. Grieve's statement to the House of Commons seems to me to be dishonest, perverse and contrary to the evidence.
In this email I wish to ask Thames Valley Police the following questions:
1. Does any photograph in the possession of Thames Valley Police show the head of Dr. David Kelly against a tree? If so, on what date and at what time(s) were any such photographs taken?
2. Does any photograph in the possession of Thames Valley Police show a gap between the head of Dr. David Kelly and the tree in question? If so, on what date and at what time(s) were any such photographs taken?
3. What estimate of the distance between Dr. Kelly's head and the tree has been made by Thames Valley Police in any and all photographs referred to in question 2?
4. Does Thames Valley Police accept that Dr. Kelly's body was photographed in two positions?
I ask Thames Valley Police to consider the evidence about which I ask questions in relation to my report to them (URN 514 of 28/10/10) that Dr. David Kelly may have been murdered.
I have copied this email to Deputy Chief Constable Francis Habgood and Assistant Chief Constable Helen Ball.
I have copied this email to the Attorney General in view of his dishonest statement to Parliament on 9th June 2011. See http://chilcotscheatingus.blogspot.com/2011/06/death-of-david-kelly-i-invite-attorney.html for background.
I have also copied this email to Craig Oliver and Steve Field at Number 10 in view of the political sensitivities of a dishonest statement to Parliament by the United Kingdom's Attorney General.
I would be grateful if, in the first instance, Mr. Hopgood would process this as a Freedom of Information request in the normal way.
Should Thames Valley Police choose to disclose the requested evidence fully, transparently and honestly by another route that would be welcome.
