UK - Lord Justice Hutton's inquiry into the death of weapons expert David Kelly has uncovered a long-running dispute over pay and pensions entitlements.
Documents submitted by the Ministry of Defence show Kelly was in dispute with his superiors pay and his pension since mid-2000.
The MoD has denied claims that it threatened Kelly with loss of his pension when he was reprimanded only weeks before his suicide.
But the new evidence suggests pensions formed part of a long-running battle between the two parties.
Kelly committed suicide after being named as the probable source of a BBC report claiming the government had “sexed up” its dossier on Iraqi weapons to strengthen the case for war.
