Death In Chile Of Jonathan Moyle

EDM number 1071 in 1989-90, proposed by George Galloway on 06/06/1990.

That this House expresses its deep concern at the strange death of British journalist Jonathan Moyle, Editor of Defence Helicopter World, found in the cupboard of his Santiago hotel room, hanged by his own shirt from a bar 5ft 4 inches from the ground although he was 5ft 8 inches tall, with his shins bruised, traces of sedatives in his stomach and blood stains on his sheets; notes that he was investigating the Chilean arms industry; notes that he was in touch with the British defence attache in Santiago; deplores the foul attempts to smear Mr Moyle being made by British security 'sources'; deplores the attitude displayed by Her Majesty's Embassy in Santiago towards Mr Moyle's death and to his family, as publicly complained of by Mr Moyle senior; demands that Her Majesty's Government fully investigate the demise abroad of yet another British journalist; and calls for a full statement from the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs.

This motion has been signed by a total of 31 MPs.
