The bid by Irish millionaire John Paul McManus to have the Coroner’s Inquest into his wife Emma McManus’ death at their palatial Sandy Lane home halted by the High Court, has failed.
Ruling that the inquest can continue, Justice Shona Griffith found that allegations of bias by McManus towards Coroner Graveney Bannister were misconceived.
In addition, she has left it up to the coroner to decide if he will hold the inquest in camera or in open court, when or if it continues.
It was back in January 2021 that Magistrate Bannister began the inquest into the death of McManus, the daughter of former Irish tennis player Peter Ledbetter. (HLE)
