Hearings

__________________________________________________________________________________

General Information

Open hearings for the Litvinenko Inquiry started at the Royal Courts of Justice on 27 January and ran until 30 March when they were adjourned until 27 July 2015.

Seating for the media and the public was available in the hearing room at the Royal Courts of Justice, Court 73 and also in an annex located in Court 66.

Witness Screening

Sir Robert Owen granted screening to a very small number of witnesses when they presented their evidence. When these witnesses gave their evidence Court 73 was closed to media representatives and the public. Proceedings continued to be followed in the annex in Court 66 which carried the audio feed.  Transcripts were available as per normal.
