Amy Winehouse - Coroner Resigns: New Hearing Set For Amy Winehouse Death Inquest

The Amy Winehouse death inquest will be reheard, after the coroner involved in the case has quit, BBC News have reported. An inquiry was launched into Dr Andrew Scott Reid’s decision to appoint his wife, Suzanne Greenaway as the assistant deputy coroner, back in July 2009 and Reid has been accused of not fully checking her qualifications.

Greenaway conducted 12 inquests in Camden during her time as deputy assistant coroner. One of those was that of Amy Winehouse, which she declared as a verdict of “death by misadventure,” in October 2011. In November last year, Ms Greenaway resigned, on the basis that she had not served 5 years as a lawyer in the UK, as is required for the post. She qualified in Australia in 1999 and was a member of the Supreme Court there but had not worked as a lawyer in the UK for the required amount of time. It is currently unknown whether or not the other 11 cases over which she presided will also be re-heard. Dr Reid stepped down from judicial office on December 7, 2012. His resignation came before the Office For Judicial Complaints had finalised their disciplinary procedure.

A new hearing has now been scheduled for January 8, 2013, at St Pancras Coroner’s Court.
