The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

One partial round to British govt, but the nuclear veterans’ legal fight continues

the fact that Mrs Sinfield’s case concerning her late husband Bert can take place in a full court hearing where all the scientific evidence held on ionising radiation damage to health will be revealed is good news .

THE IRON FIST OF JUSTICE  Paul Langley’s Nuclear History Blog from Dennis Hayden 23 Nov 10, A partial victory in the appeals verdict is all we need This message has been sent to Members of Parliament . That is , the legal team is fully supportedby all nuclear veterans and widows in efforts to get the nine test cases excluded to be allowed to go to full high court trial .

However , the fact that Mrs Sinfield’s case concerning her late husband Bert can take place in a full court hearing where all the scientific evidence held on ionising radiation damage to health will be revealed is good news .

This has been the objective from the beginning of litigation because it will only take one case for the truth on of radiation damage to be revealed . The MoD would like to think they have gained a victory . They have only managed a stay of execution .

The appeal court ruling is allowing one of the 10 test cases to proceed to full trial and has ruled out nine . That is only 9 out of the 1011 or so involved ruled out . The MoD are claiming a victory but it is just another legal delaying tactic . On the plus side we have the parallel Tribunal Appeals Case Hearing still in process in which the MoD are refusing to release 500 documents and the significant new evidence in the Redfern Inquiry Report released on the 16th November . On balance this is set back only . The fight continues and the longer they delay allows more damning evidence to emerge against them . .
