Depleted Jean de Menezes jury consider verdict for 6th day

The remaining 10 Jurors at the inquest on the murder of Jean Charles de Menezes started their sixth day of deliberations at the early time of 9.30 am today.

Yesterday the Coroner Sir Michael Wright told the jury it must now reach a majority of at least eight to two.

One wondesr what sort of legal precedent is set by a jury providing a verdict on which only 8 of the original dozen can agree ?

As Gareth Pierce et al are applying to the High Court for a judicial review of Sir Michael Wright 's directions to the jury about what verdicts can be permitted - it would seem that m'lern'd friends are due to make some more moolah. .. £ 4 MN. to date and the meter is still ticking.

If the Coroner, Sir Michael Wright, is a member of the Privy Council, then he has to do what the 'Crown' tells him, without question.

Also, all Appeal Court Judges are members of the Privy Council, so they would have to toe the line (whatever their personal. moral beliefs) too.
