Inquests: Notable case

Inquest into the deaths of Captain T Sawyer & Corporal D Winter (2015)

Following a narrative verdict at the inquest of two British servicemen killed in Afghanistan in a friendly fire incident, their families, represented by QEB Hollis Whiteman Barristers Phil Evans and Tom Coke-Smythe, called for both a review of how the Javelin weapons system is used and for a government inquiry into the Afghan conflict itself.

The coroner’s verdict recorded  that human error and a series of "interconnected events" caused the deaths in 2009.
