The apparent conspiracy by the UK government and its agencies to conceal the real cause of death of 7-year old Zane Gbangbola may go right up to Prime Minister David Cameron, writes Paul Mobbs.
He was chair of the COBRA emergency committee at the time when it appears to have held back the truth that he was killed by cyanide from the toxic landfill site his home was built over.
Almost a year ago I wrote an article for The Ecologist entitled ‘death by landfill‘.
Given the lack of information at that time, the article focussed on how John Major’s Conservative government of the early 1990s reneged on a promise to introduce strict laws on contaminated land.
These would have required historic land contamination to be tracked down and, where appropriate, made safe. Had they been enacted they may have prevented Zane’s death twenty years later.
Almost two years on from Zane’s death, in advance of the inquest (already a year overdue), new information is beginning to emerge on the events of that day.
These documents raise questions as to whether the Government covered-up the unsettling facts of Zane’s death, and its implication for Britain’s legacy of contaminated land.
