Verdict to be re-examined after coroner was found to be underqualified
An inquest into Amy Winehouse’s death is to be held again after it was revealed the coroner who conducted the original hearing was underqualified.
Deputy assistant coroner Suzanne Greenaway – who recorded a verdict of misadventure after Amy, 27, died in her London home last year – was discovered to have had inadequate qualifications at the time of the inquest.
The father of the Back To Black singer, Mitch Winehouse, admitted he would not be attending the second hearing in order to save himself and his family from further heartache.
‘I will not allow my family to go through that again,’ Mitch, 60, says.
‘All that will happen is that the key points will be reheard.
‘We are not going to put ourselves through that again.’
Amy’s is one of twelve cases that are facing a second inquest and under-trained coroner Suzanne Greenaway has since resigned from her post.
