Amy Winehouse Inquest Will Be Reheard

Written by Marc Zanotti on December 18, 2012

Amy Winehouse’s cause of death will be re-examined after the original inquest was deemed a misadventure due to the original coroner’s lack of qualifications.

As reported by The Guardian, a spokesperson for Camden Council revealed that an investigation has found that Suzanne Greenaway, who oversaw Winehouse’s inquest, was appointed to the position of deputy assistant coroner without the required experience.

Greenway had previously worked as a nurse, barrister and solicitor in Australia but was required by British Law to also have at least five years experience as a qualified medical practitioner or five years experience with the Law Society.

She gained the position of deputy assistant coroner in July 2009 with the help of her husband, Dr Andrew Reid, who has since stepped down from his role as the coroner for inner North London.

A new hearing into the death of Winehouse will be held on January 8, 2013 at St Pancras Coroners Court, North London. However, a spokesperson for the Winehouse family said that they do not expect the verdict to change nor did they ask that the inquest be reheard.

“The family were happy with the way the original inquest was conducted and did not request it to be reheard. This seems to be a matter of procedure and the verdict is not expected to change,” said the Winehouse family spokesperson, according to The Guardian.
