Biography for David Kelly

First Name: David
Last Name: Kelly
Title: Weapons expert (deceased)
Date of Birth: 17/05/1944-17/07/2003
Spouses: Janice Kelly (current)
Education: He was educated at Oxford
CV: He had been chief science officer at Britain's Natural Environment Research Council Institute of Virology. He rose through the ranks at the Ministry of Defence's chemical research centre at Porton Down in Wiltshire, which he joined in 1984, to become head of microbiology. He was an expert in arms control, working as a weapons inspector in Iraq between 1991 and 1998, following the first Gulf War. He spent the majority of his career as a consultant to the MoD and other government departments and agencies, advising them on his area of expertise - arms control. Dr Kelly became senior adviser on biological warfare for the UN in Iraq in 1994, holding the post until 1999. He was sufficiently well respected to have been nominated for a Nobel peace prize by the man who led the Iraq weapons inspections for much of the 1990s, Rolf Ekeus. He also led all the visits and inspections of Russian biological warfare facilities from 1991 to 1994 under the 1992 Trilateral Agreement between the US, UK and Russia. Kelly's discussion with Today programme journalist Andrew Gilligan about the British government's dossier on weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in Iraq inadvertently caused a major political scandal. He was found dead days after appearing before a Parliamentary committee, to whose investigation the scandal was subject.
