Coroner's Inquests into the London Bombings of 7 July 2005

For regularly updated news and analysis from the 7/7 Inquests, please see the dedicated J7: 7/7 Inquests Blog

7/7 Inquests Transcripts as Searchable, Print-Friendly PDFs

Transcripts of the 7/7 Inquests hearings are being published on the official Coroner's Inquests into the London Bombings of 7 July 2005 web site. However the transcripts are only being published in a simple HTML format that is not suitable for printing or searching. J7 asked the inquest secretariat if there were any plans to publish the inquest transcripts in PDF format, in the same way that transcripts for the inquest into Jean Charles de Menezes - the young Brazilian extra-judicially executed by the British State on 22 July 2005 - were published, but we were merely advised that the transcripts would be published on the inquest web site after each day's hearings.

As the inquest secretariat are not publishing the transcripts as PDFs, J7 decided to produce the PDFs from the HTML versions published on the official inquest web site. The content of the PDFs is reproduced verbatim from the official transcripts and J7's PDF versions of the transcripts are designed to be suitable for searching, printing and annotating. PDF copies of the inquest transcripts will be published as soon as possible following their publication on the 7 July Inquests web site.

J7's submissions to the inquest, as described by the Counsel to the inquests, Hugo Keith QC, prized defender of Queen and State against all-comers, as "voluminous", can be found here, along with our submission regarding the resumption of the inquests into the four.

All transcripts and evidence are reproduced courtesy of: http://www.independent.gov.uk/7julyinquests/

Notes for Editors

  • J7: The July 7th Truth Campaign was established shortly after the events of 7th July 2005, when it transpired that the unfolding story was giving rise to more questions than answers.
  • J7's ongoing research efforts have twice forced the government to amend the official Home Office narrative which, on one occasion, required the then Home Secretary, Dr John Reid, to stand before parliament and announce a major factual inacurracy to the house.
  • J7 do not accept that the Inquests into 52 of the 56 deaths should stand in place of Inquests into the four men accused of perpetrating the events of 7/7.
  • J7 are dismayed that the families of the accused have been refused the legal aid that would have allowed them to be represented at the current round of Inquests.
  • J7 fully expect that the Inquests into the four accused should be opened and conducted publicly once the Inquests into the 52 have been completed.
  • J7 are concerned that some witnesses called at the Inquests may have already been presented with the Metropolitan Police site reports from each of the four locations. We have requested that any witnesses called to give testimony at the Inquests are asked to state for the public record whether they have viewed and/or read the Metropolitan Police reports as it is highly unusual that witnesses called to give evidence in any case would be privy to such reports. J7 are deeply concerned about the impact and effects that having access to these reports prior to giving their testimonies will have on their recollections of events and the witness testimonies that will be given to the inquest.
  • In November 2005, after repeated refusals by the government to hold an independent public inquiry into 7/7, and given the paucity of evidence presented to support the official narrative of events, J7 established its People's Investigation Forum to coordinate our ongoing research efforts and track the progress of the many Freedom of Information requests we have issued in order to try and uncover the truth.
  • Over 3,200 people have signed our petition calling on the government and police to release the evidence they claim to have. J7 supports all calls for an independent public inquiry, and are the only organisation calling for a public inquiry who specifically stipulate that any inquiry should be held outside of the remit of the Inquiries Act 2005 that subjects all public inquiries to full government control.
  • The fruits of J7's research, along with articles by respected writers and academics are published on our main web site at www.julyseventh.co.uk.
