His Honour Peter Rook QC has outlined the issues that will come within the scope of the inquest he will be conducting into the death of Private Sean Benton.
Pte Benton died at Princess Royal Barracks, Deepcut, Surrey in June 1995. The High Court ruled last October that the inquest into his death held in July 1995 should be quashed and a fresh inquest ordered.
The scope of the fresh inquest, which will commence in early 2018, is set out here following a pre-inquest review hearing in London on Friday 16 June.
A further pre-inquest review hearing will take place on Wednesday 20 September 2017 at HM Coroner’s Court, Station Approach, Woking, Surrey GU22 7AP.
